The word average is the first that comes to mind describing this hotel. The location right on the beach is fine but thats about it. Nothing much to see or experience in the area around and food and drinks were also pretty average. First time we have met a bartender in a beach bar who not know how to make... More

Average place for a day's stay. No lifts so we had to walk two floors up. The pool was dirty on the deeper side. Cockroaches in the toilets, Bad air con. Pretty run down place though they try to keep them clean. The reception also does not have air conditioning. Food though was excellent. Would prefer some other place next... More

Since I didn't want to waste my time and money at the worst place ICEBEAR Guesthouse, I was looking for a ''real'' beach hotel or restaurant to relax. Fortunately, I found this place with nice pool and great view (unlike the view from the Icebear Guesthouse!!). The bike from the Icebear Guesthouse was very bad and didn't have proper lock.... More

We stayed here for two nights. The place is pretty tired but clean. Poor showers in rooms. But rooms were large with ac. Balconies facing the sea were good but rooms facing the street were noisy. An average buffet breakfast but omelettes and fresh fruit were good.

This hotel is a good choice to have some rest after your flight. We had ocean-side rooms equipped with fridge & AC and a big balcony facing to the sea. The pool was nice and with direct connection to the ocean so you also can take a few steps outside to the sandy beach and enjoy the sunset. The staff... More

Rooms were adequate size with balcony and air conditioning. The pool made our stay even better. Internet was just at the reception, but at least it was working. Nice friendly staff and a good buffet. Ocean wiew was beautiful from the pool.

I have added this hotel myself because it was really peaceful and very clean. the rooms do vary, the ones with the communal terrace are nicer but more expensive. there are 7 rooms... More
