First of all this hotel is not on the beach you have to walk out to the street and try and cross it without being hit. Next the pictures on the internet weren't even close to what the rooms look like, If you look at trip advisor first picture they put you up in the three story buildings on the left hand side of the picture. Otherwise it is the perfect hotel in the perfect location. You are one street off the night life. I felt very safe here. I also got stomach flu or a stomach bug while there. Please remember its a third world country about 50 years behind us. Had to go to the emergency room at about 300 USD . They don't refrigerate a lot of things and they use ice but I don't think its made from safe water. Also the hotel tap water you cannot drink Don't know about brushing teeth with it either . And I did neither and still got sick.
