We knew before we arrived that this was not going to be a luxury hotel but it certainly has a lot going for it. Firstly it is on the nicest part of the beach, and I mean ON the beach, it is a short walk on an attractive pathway and you're there. The staff on arrival were friendly and tucked Frangipani flowers in our hair. The rooms were basic but clean and the bed quite comfy. There was even good aircon which I wasn't expecting. Breakfast was great, fresh fruit, cereals, toast and you could have eggs cooked to order. Sitting in the breakfast room was like being right on the beach... we lingered over breakfast each day. There was free wi-fi near the front desk. It is an easy walk into the town and the duty free shopping. The beach in town was no-where near as nice(clean) as ours. I recommend the Cliff restaurant for sunset drinks and dinner, fabulous.
So were there any downsides... our room was very tired looking and a bit motel like. Maybe we should have paid for the more expensive rooms but as I didn't see inside them I can't comment. The sunset has no swimming pool and there were jellyfish in the sea, so that was a negative. I wouldn't want to spend a week here as it is pretty small and has no bar, although the one next door was pretty good. If money is the main issue then you will be very happy with your choice. If money isn't a problem maybe try Casa Del Mar.
