Very Good 8.0 From 23 reviews

Fair 4.0
Not great
There wasn't ac and the fans weren't very strong. Windows were open so a bunch of bugs crawled into the place. The curtains were completely see-through in the bathroom was positioned right in front of the windows to a walkway which was very uncomfortable. All the doors that we actually tried closing didn't close correctly and open correctly either. also breakfast was supposed to be included but it wasn't open which was really inconvenient for us as we had a tour scheduled and had to rush to go find breakfast elsewhere. There's a little kitchen so if you prefer to make your own food it's a good place for you but overall it was a very uncomfortable stay. It's about a 5 minute or less walk from the beach which was great.

Close to the beach, private area with parking which was closed at night adding safety. Clean rooms. We had to wait for the room to be ready even after check in time. The bathroom had a funny smell. Otherwise, very nice location.

Very hard to find, need more Hotel signs along roads. Once you arrive it is a nice place, Great staff and some of the best Metal Sculptures I have ever seen in the Bar.

Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful place, walk to the beach, helpful staff!
The only downside of this place is that they are currently under construction, so there's lots of noise. (though, it's not really any big deal to me). The staff was super helpful and accomodating, the cabinas are fantastic. 2 bedrooms, a couch and a kitchen. Private bath. Definitely recommend this place!
