The ocean front room with beautiful sea views was awesome! There are no frills but my stay was fabulous. Rooms are cleaned today. The mattress was... More

I would recommend the downstairs rooms to anyone because its cooler and cleaner than the last floor...The bar view is Fantastic. I enjoyed every bit of it. The owner was friendly. Also the front desk girl was professional and speedy to... More

Checked in for two days. First night we spent in a non-airconditioned room as they had none with air conditioning and I don't really care if there is AC or not. The room was 15 dollars a night less and it was definitely lower quality. The deck was nice although it overlooked the next resort - they also didn't have... More

The room wasn't the most modern but clean on a daily basis and the view from the room was absolutely what you would expect when you go on holiday in the sun, peaceful, beautiful and tranquillity. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I will definitely stay here again. Its perfect if you're holidaying on a budget..
