    Do not let the immediate surroundings or even the external appearance of this hotel frighten you. This is very convenient place, perfectly clean, very pleasant and helpful manager and staff. Close to the airport, to a nice beach, and to several restaurants.

    Yes, here in the Caribbean buildings are close together and the neighbors can detract from the property. We try to keep our property clean and tidy. Room cleanliness is most important. Thanks for your review
