Visited in October we had a room with sea side view, perfect! Clean and enough space for the 2 of us. Friendly staff and overall a great stay. In town a few restaurants but nothing special, so you need to drive for 10 minutes but no problem at all. Though the hot tub, was way to hot... , but if... More

This hotel was basically perfect for our needs. The beds were a bit firm for our liking but we are now staying in a four star hotel on the west end of the island and encountered the same firm beds. The concierge Diego was very helpfull and kind and speaks English very well. The hotel was very clean with a... More

we stayed here for 4 nights and were pleasantly surprised at our hotel. Room was big and bright with a large balcony which held a table, 2 chairs and a lounger.

Lovely staff who so tried to be helpful. We prepaid for seven nights through an agency but left after one. Lovely view (we paid extra) from an OK room with a great balcony, although the harbour is sadly neglected as a place of interest (and note, there is no beach). The hotel was too remote for us as we weren't... More

Hotel is right on the harbour and has beautiful views. It was April when I visited and the hotel was very quiet so the pool area seems unattended and needed work - but staff were really lovely - I was upgraded in the room and had a very pleasant day trekking around the local hills and water front. It is... More

Our room with the ocean view was great. There was a nice breeze from the ocean, sometimes bordering on a much stronger wind. Breakfast was fine, if not elegant. There was a small refrigerator that we used. I don't know if the TV was old...I was there to see the island, not TV. If you are going to drive, reserve... More

This hotel is right on the water and has nice views. For the money it is a great choice, at least for a short stay. It's not much for extras in the room, a really old fashioned TV and no refrigerator. There is an area on the top floor that has wonderful 360 degree views of the area. We got... More

Stayed for one night. The hotel has a cute location, and good facilities. Only Negatives in the room was the 20 year old minimal tv and the dirty shower head. The breakfast though was terrible with really low quality products... Have breakfast somewhere else. Service was really nice.

A super hotel. make sure you get a room overlooking the harbour and the sea. The breakfast is really good and the staff are so helpful. The only drawback was that there was no eating facilities in the evening at the hotel.

Definitely worth the extra for a room with a sea view. Nice big room. Only negative comment would be that there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Whole hotel is very clean. Staff friendly. Good continental breakfast. Very quiet small town. We're just at the end of the season so there only a few restaurants still open within walking... More
