I was travelling in a group when we stayed at this hotel. We were greeted and people took our bags for us. We were given complimentary frozen drinks in the lobby as a welcome drink, and this was a nice touch. The pool area(s) are very nice, however the website advertised for an in-pool bar. The bar is there, but... More

I would not recommend staying at this hotel. They are undergoing renovation so may be things will improve, but currently the place is a bit run down. The main swimming pool was so murky that you could not even see the steps. Luckily we found the one at the back of the property which was much cleaner. And a pool... More

This Hotel should not be for to North Americans. Problems with Air Conditioning, Small rooms, Rooms smelled bad, over priced, No bar or food service after like 9 PM on Friday. Talked to Manager with no consideration at all. Not even sorry. Money was deposited in bank before trip. That way you cannot leave early or dispute etc. For those... More

I LOVED this property! It's right on the beach, which is a great place to watch surfers. It's not safe for swimming because of the rip-tides being so strong there. However, it's a great beach to walk. The food was PHENOMENAL. The dining area is outdoors and overlooks the water. There were two pools. The swim-up bar was not in... More

The beach views and the beach are fantastic! Our rooms were clean with and OK-working AC and good showers. The property itself is very dated and not in a charming way. It can definitely use some updates since the beach area around is was beautiful. Black sand, great waves to swim (but not directly near the hotel - you will... More

This place was disgusting. They were rude right at the get go. There were ants in the room, bugs on the comforters and lizards in the room. The safe didn't work , they said they would send someone right up and no one ever came. The shower was broken, they again said they would send someone up and no one... More

We stayed here on an OAT tour for 2 nights. If your tour is bringing your here - protest it before you leave for your trip!! It presents nicely from the outside - landscaping - pool - beautiful view of the ocean surf. So check in - and take a closer look! Rooms are very shabby. Bathrooms are atrocious! Plug... More

This had to be one of the worst hotels I have stayed in for a long time. Everything was old and outdated. The air conditioning was very sporadic. Paint was chipping from the exterior of the building. The door leading out to the pool area had a bedroom door lock which could be opened from the outside with a pin... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The bedroom was adequate, and there was a small patio looking out over the ocean. But the bathroom floor was broken up and uneven. The water was hard to control - hot then cold then hot - as we showered. Lighting is dim in all rooms, so it's hard... More
