We stayed here for four nights. Hotel was okay, good location but nothing special. We got bed bugs here. We kindly asked the staff to refund us for the night, and they fought us and wouldn't even reimburse us. They wouldn't even let us call the owner to ask for a refund. We weren't going to make a scene, but... More

This hotel is clean, price is fair, staff is very friendly and on the main street. Those are the pros. I experienced many brown outs in my windowless room, which caused a very, very hot sleepless evening with a fire emergency light pointed in my eyes. The shower was warm, not hot and I couldn't get my TV to work.... More

Stayed at this place for a week over new year with a group of friends. We had 5 rooms between us all. Check in was a little chaotic, but once in, rooms were fine (basic, but it is a basic location). The aircon was great, beds comfortable, rooms clean. No hot water for the whole week but this could be... More

I happened to need a place that took credit cards after I ran out of cash. This place also had a TripAdvisor sticker in the window so I thought I would check it out. Since I was a late comer, the only room available was larger room down on the first floor near the front desk. It had a large... More

We stayed for 5 nights. The first two nights we had rooms in the front but could not sleep well because of the noise and sometimes the emergency lights came on when the electricity was off. The rooms in the back were much quieter. Overall the rooms were clean and the free coffee and tea was nice as well. The... More

The location would be great, close to everything but not too close from the big noise. But this doesn't help, as our room was so noisy due to a huge generator. It was not just a little bit and it was all day and night long. We could not sleep at all, so we decided after the first night to... More

Big rooms with big bathrooms! Good Flat screen TV. Rooms are cleaned daily and towels, linens are replenished daily as well. Location is central to all activities: restaurants, island hopping tours, groceries, etc. Wifi is only available at the lobby. No free breakfast provided. Ask for the rooftop rooms: great view of the beach.

I really enjoyed my 2 night stay at this hotel. It's in a very convenient location where you can walk to a number of restaurants, shops, and in less than a minute you can be by the beach. Although you don't see the beach from the hotel, that's ok since it helps with the price being lower than other hotels... More
