This hotel gives great value for money, even if it has really seen better days. The pool got progressively nastier in terms of hygiene the longer we stayed and the more visitors who arrived (we got there before Christmas, and as more guests arrived just after Boxing Day, it got to be pretty opaque looking--probably no chlorine, or at least not anywhere near enough), but the laid back atmosphere and reasonably priced rooms more than compensated. Poolside bar and quite a decent restaurant, breakfast was included, rooms are clean. Our bedding and towels were fine. Showers had pretty low water pressure, and tended not to be too warm by day's end. The early bird gets the warmest shower...Sometimes a little noisy in the late evening, particularly as more families populated the rooms, but was always quiet at night. A few sort of sketchy "regulars" populate the pool deck (seems a number of people who have boats moored in the lagoon are spending their days there), but were all very friendly. The thrice weekly drop in yoga classes were great!
