The rooms are ok although a bit tired the airco worked fine and the shower could do with some improvement. It is a budjet hotel so you get what you pay... More

The hotel is a short walk from the beach in a residential part of the town so is reasonably quiet at night. Rooms are basic & a little tired but very clean. There is very little outside space as most is... More
