The hotel is cheap but it´s still expensive for the quality. Smells bad, very bad in the bathroom. The flush of the toilet does not work ok so it was noisy all night long! Very old hotel. Breakfast is simple which is on accordance with the price. Only good points are the location and the WIFI which works ok.

This hotel is very basic and not well maintained. The front desk staff is great, very helpful and pleasant, but the hotel management (the bearded guy with religious attire) is unfriendly, aloof, and don't even bother to fix as simple things as a light switch cover or plastic toilet flush cover.....which were cracked. Our room smelled of sewage, due to... More

This Hotel is very, very old, the carpet in the room is something horrible, old and dirty. I did not feel well in this Hotel. The Toillet is very small and does not work proper. When I have been there it was very noisy until late in the night. It is a 3 Star Hotel but I would not even... More

Incredible location! We loved the hotel rooms prices .We were closed to everything! The staff very cool.We became good friends. Hotel is simple but has very good prices( we paid U$S 60) We went to the Casino, we won and and had a free vacation plus U$S 700! Definite we are coming back next time to this lucky hotel

Without doubt the worst hotel we have experienced in the last decade of world travel. Although clean, it was essentially old and worn out. Our room was 1960s or 70s vintage with nothing updated or even replaced since that time (including the bed and bedspread). It reminded us of eastern European hotels in former communist countries, except they were low... More

Best thing about the hotel is the location. 300 meters to the beach and 1 block to the bus terminal. The price was the best for similar hotels for the middle of January. The staff were great. When I put my head out the window I could see the ocean.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is probably renovated in the midt 70's and nobody has done anything since. We guess that not even the towels have been changed since, as big spots were missing the towel cloth (have a look at the photos) Carpets are full of holes, and tiles in the bathroom are missing,...
