Transfer to the hotel from airport about 30 minutes. An old hotel at the beginning of Costera. About 350 m from the beach. Costera is very busy 6 lanes street which is difficult to cross when you go to the beach. Rooms are small, no bath tubs - just shower. Hot water is not always, however a cold water is... More

The bed was rock hard and the bathrooms were old and in need of repair. Stay elsewhere! Avoid the head to toe bites I am... More

We were treated nicely and our rooms were clean . The food was good and fresh. A basic budget property that people return to year after year. Some for over 35 yrs. We will go again Jan. 2011 but for 28 days. Met lots of nice people there. The stall were all friendly and most managed English.
