The hotel is located close to the harbour, and within a walking distance there are many restaurants, kiosks, and stores. The room was good, and cleaned well everyday. The staff was helpful, and we enjoyed our stay a lot. I could recommend this hotel for everybody, as long as you aren't looking for anything too luxurious.

This hotel is in a good location - very central in town. The staff were friendly and helpful. My room was large and nicely, but simply, furnished, however my "view" was a brick wall. In my first room the AC worked poorly and the power went out several times, so I was moved. In my second room the AC worked... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and would stay here again! It was such a great location right downtown for such a great price. Has a beautiful view of the water from the hallway. Sometimes you can hear street noise because the windows were only shutters.

This place was amazingly spacious for so cheap! The bed was enormous and clean, and all our towels were made into little fans and swan, super cute. The air con was great, there is no TV, and they give you bottles of water too. Downsides, the air con is slightly loud and so is the generator next to the bathroom.... More

I was not as thrilled with this motel as some of the other reviewers. On the other hand, if you are looking for a cheap place to just sleep, this is a good value. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Toilet did not work well and the sign telling you to put used toilet paper in the... More

The dive instuctor was fantastic, and the dives were great. I had expected... More
