Last minute booking. At least they had a room. Probably marked up because it was the weekend. I will not stay here again

I thought the hotel was on the beach, it wasn't. Clean, neat, renovated. Breakfast was good. Towels were not enough, but when I asked for more, they were gladly given to me. didn't feel like it was in a very safe area of town. needed to drive to the beach. not within walking distance.

This was my second time staying here. The staff is rude and not very helpful. Our telephone did not work and I asked for a new one and never received it. The breakfast was not very good. I will never stay here again.

It was acceptable, we did have ants in our room and when I asked for additional towels we didn't receive any until I asked the cleaning lady the next morning.

We attempted to tell her that she did not put coffee in and she ignored us. The only thing available was waffles. The towels in the room was old... More
