I arrived on Sunday and there was absolutely nothing open anywhere around the hotel, so I had to resort to the hotel food.
The room was extremely small for the size of the bed but I managed.
The mattress was ok and I didn't have much trouble dealing with with the spaces available.
There was a buffet and, with nothing else around, I decided to go for it.
Available there was rice, beans, chicken and some beef medallions, which I chose to my regret. I had to swallow the meat pratically whole to avoid spitting it back on the plate. I lacked hydraulic jaws to be able to chew it.
Service was OK, albeit some pompous attitude by the front desk gentleman (there was he, a white man, and two black young ladies. The ladies were nicer.
Would I return? Only if circumstances demanded due to proximity to a place where I needed to conduct business, otherwise no.
The top floor, where they have a "swimming pool" (more like a 7' X 7' tank), offered an amazing view of the Sugar Loaf mountain. They also have a gym and sauna which I did not visit.
The float screen, however, had good reception and several channels, including CNN International in English.
The shower was pretty decent, but the lighting in the bathroom sucked.
Incidentally, the restaurant did not offer a la carte. Buffet ot bust.More
