Courteous Staff, Decent Location, Beautiful Beach view. This hotel was bit over priced, however there were no fixed prices, everything was negotiable. Each guy gave different price, due to their coordination gaps we got to know there were no specific or fixed prices. We got a decent deal after negotiating & rooms were decent. Rooms had beach view and that's... More

A clean, highly efficient hotel in an amazing location. Situated right on the beach, the spacious rooms and dining areas have amazing views of the expansive beach and sunsets. Perfect location for walking along the beach and exploring the local restaurants and craft shops. Staff most welcoming and helpful.

Clean rooms, nice and friendly staff, nice view over "indian" part of the beach. Clear water in pool. Breakfast buffet on the balcony of the top floor not the biggest, but good. A few minutes walk to "the cliff" with the most restaurants.
