I loved this hotel. It's literally right on the beach. The WIFI works really well here and the staff is super friendly! They gave you beach towels as well. They had a tv with several channels and the water in the shower was really hot. If I get the chance I will stay here again.

Nice hotel, right on the beach which is pretty, good for families and the trees offer much needed shade, as well as quite flat for our morning run. Basic rooms but clean and air con was much needed. Nice lounge balcony area to chill out on. Good beach towels and beach chairs which the team are happy for you to use on the beach which was a big bonus. Friendly staff and a great breakfast menu! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Clean, cozy open-air hotel right on the beautiful beach. Very friendly hotel staff. Staff were helpful in arranging taxis and tours for us. Our room was clean and spacious with a basic bathroom. No ocean view from the room, but it was always cool and quiet, being tucked away from the sun and far away from the pool. There is a small pool on site but no gym. Also, a nice veranda on the second floor for quiet reading and relaxing. No loud music from the bar was a big plus. The food and drinks in the restaurant were pretty good, but certainly not exceptional.

This was the first stop of our honeymoon, and we're so glad we stayed here! It's location right on the beach is perfect with an amazing view of the sun set. Janet at the front desk is incredibly kind and helpful and made our experience special. The food at the bar is very good and has great service. One of the bartenders recommended a catamaran tour that ended up being the perfect way to start our honeymoon.
