Nice rooms, new bathrooms, air conditioning, room cleaning, restaurant, pool... And Kevin the manager is the man! So helpful and kind. It's a short walk from the beaches and... More

Good for relaxing and is affordable compared to other hotels around. Breakfast was very nice, the room had working AC and nice balcony but aren't very spacious though. About 3mins away from the beach... More
