I got a budget room because i was staying for an entire month. Was a bit annoying that there were no cooking facilities, but it was made up for by the amazing buffet hot breakfast daily (except sundays, it was continental).
Room was quiet enough, room had no view, but had airconditioning, bar fridge, kettle, ensuite, and TV.
It was clean enough, with house keeping daily.
Had a few incidents with cockroaches, but I expect that at most tropical destinations.
Location was good - right opposite the PKA hall which hosts local markets every fortnight. Close to food vendors too. Not too fussed about the Grand pub food, but apparently the restaurant Maru Palu is spectacular.
