I stayed there for 5 days. Very cheap and reasonable place. The cafe is really good to sit in and read and have a drink but the food is not very good. It is better to go out and get some shwarma or anything for that matter

There was a birthday party with a couple of families but the music was too loud and not very nice, we asked them to try and turn the volume down but... More

Although its not a 5 star hotel, but it's been excellent, specially if you're looking for a good one with economic prices . The rooms were good ,comfortable and well air-conditioned. the resturant has amazing view with very hardworker staff. Plus it has its own diving center and near shopping area, bazars and most kinds of foods/drinks caffes and resturants.... More
