This hotel is ok but its a tad run down. We just needed somewhere to sleep for the night so it done the job. It doesn't seem to be a large hotel and the rooms were also a bit small. The staff were very friendly, particualrly the chap who works the reception desk at night. Breakfast was ok but as... More

It has four stars, but it sometimes seems like an exaggeration. The rooms were ok, the swimming pool in the hotel seemed slightly dirty, but who cares if there’s a... More

Hotel staff is friendly though not conversant in English. Daily breakfast was adequate not special. My room was very small and sufficient. I loved my beach view. The hotel is nicely located across from an interesting fishing community. It is a nice walk to the outdoor evening market. All in all, for the price, this s a good place for... More
