Lonely Planet review
Stylish enough to be alluring but not too stuck up or intimidating, this art-deco classic, built across the avenue from the bluffs in 1932, sports suites and apartments with funky paint jobs and wallpaper, marble baths, wood floors and kitchenettes. They all have at least a sliver of a sea view.
