Stayed in a twin room for one night. Room was facing the sea side but just a lil bit of sea could be seen. Room was a bit small but it's ok for one night stay. Including necessary amenities. Borenos the local fried chicken was just outside the hotel. Famous seafood restuarants

Though it is a affordable hotel but beware of your things and belongings. Don’t leave anything. The staffs will not even bother in helping you to retrieve them. Now a hotel is not even safe for your belongings.

Honestly, I regretted for staying this hotel. If only I knew the room is small, I rather find somewhere else. It does not fit with the price I paid at all. Despite the room is small, I have to say that the hotel location is quite good with provided parking in front of the hotel.

The smallest room I have ever stayed. The decorations are nice but no closet and other amenities. The plus points was the view but not really beach view. Parking is just in front the hotel. Need to get the entrance ticket and get people at receptionist counter acknowlege it.
