This hotel is located right on a sandy beach. It is an older hotel but the rooms have been updated and were very clean. The rooms are large with comfortable platform beds. We were in the Lei building on the second floor. I would definitely recommend that floor, if you want a view of the beach from an ocean view room.
The location of this hotel is good. It is easy to go in either direction, north or south, from here.
The staff were very helpful, especially, Angela, who went out of her way to make sure we were satisfied with our room.
Previous responses to reviews by management indicated that they were hoping to open a restaurant in January, 2015. There is no work going on in that regard. They have a meagre continental breakfast of juice, bananas, donuts, coffee/tea. I am not sure how much they spend on donuts, but I would think that having loaves of bread and some jam, which they have for the tour groups, already, would be much better.
There are chairs and loungers on the beach provided along with beach towels.
