First the location is a bit off. No proper parking area. Reception Area far from entrance. Stairs going to room has a lots of staff not in duty seating, a bit of privacy issue. Toilet and rooms not so clean, needs improvement. Food downstairs is OK, a little bit pricey for that kind of place. Airport transfer service is good.... More

In Alona, you have either have the expensive hotels and the budget ones. This is as good as budget hotels come. Fantastic staff, good restaurant, rooms are ok, cleanliness is above average. Wi-Fi is fast enough.

The hotel is about a 3-5 min walk to the beach. Price was a lot cheaper than all beachfront accommodations so we settled here instead. The room was okay and moderately clean. Shower water was kinda salty though, I wasn't used to this even if I've been to numerous beach hotels before. What I really liked about this place was... More

We did not get the chance to occupy the bungalows across the street that are much nicer than the regular rooms. Although the hotel is very central (5min walking distance from the beach), we were disappointed with the standards of the hotels for the price (33 usd) No aircon, no breakfast, salted water from the plumbery, very loud : corridor...
