Reasonable, & very clean room. It was ideal for what we were looking for. The staff was very, very friendly. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the price. I would definitely stay again :-)

We stayed for three days here and were very happy. The locations is great, right across from the lagoon. The place is clean and tidy with laundry, kitchen etc. The room we choose had a fan and that was fine without air con and the pool is nice too. Beds are comfy and the price was reasonable.

Stayed one night here and the staff were very friendly and the room was excellent value for the money. Wifi is available for purchase, reasonable fee. Great location and even though it is on a busy road, no noise really, slept very well. Thank you.

This a dated and tired looking hotel with basic rooms, cement block walls and paper thin doors and slat louvred walls. For budget accommodations, there is not much choice on the Esplanade. Clean, good hot shower, towels and hand soap and bar fridge. The location is perfect and the bed was comfortable. A basic single twin/double goes for $59 a... More

The place is basic but for 19$ a night this is what is expected. The place is very clean and the staff is friendly. I stayed at nomads for a couple of nights prior and wanted to vomit... When I came here it felt like heaven compared to that hell hole. Definitely worth the money. Location is perfect!! And bathroom... More

The Bellview's biggest draw is its location - next to the beach and the Lagoon, everything is ieasy reach. The rooms are clean, but not very nice. The furniture is lacking, and very rundown, but I did not expect more for the price. Great place to sleep at, so if you are going on tours all the time, this can... More

This hostel is in a great location, has a nice small pool and we had a big en suite double room. This was very clean and had good air con and shower. The hostel kitchen is pretty basic but good enough to breakfast or make a sandwich. They let us into our room at 8 am when we arrived off... More
