I highly recommend this apartment. room is standard but the ocean view, pool sauna, jacuzzi is the best . The location is slot on beach is right across the road. 3or 4 times a week theres a night market. Shops, restaurants are just there. Very inconvenience for everything.😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I stayed at this budget hotel for one night with my wife during the low season almost three years ago. The reason it's a budget hotel is that it does not have 24-hour staff at the reception and the rooms are cleaned on demand. This was not a concern to us at all. The hotel is at a great location...

Have stayed here nearly every year for about 35 years and just love the location. I always enjoy the fabulous beach and water views from lounge room and just walk across the road to the beach. Very clean and comfortable beds and the full kitchen is a great money saver. Has large swimming pool, spas and saunas and wonderful restaurant... More

A family of 3 stayed at this venue last week. The location is spot on and the views were sensational. The hotel itself is tired and needs a make over, in saying that the pool area is lovely. The room we had was a Seaview Studio Apartment. It had everything we needed full kitchen including a microwave. We would return... More

We enjoyed our stay. Location was great! Room was very clean and tidy. Everything we needed was in the room. Reception staff seemed like they didn't know much. Simple questions they didn't know or we got wrong information.

The ammenities include a laundry, free parking, a pool, spa , sauna, pool table, game room, restaurant and bar downstairs. There is no air con and no room service.... More
