One room was located right on the water of the bay and had a large terrace; it was large and comfortably appointed. The other room was dark, dingy, smokey (!) and had no view. The pool was very pleasant, there were lots of birds around. Breakfast was minimal - it was coffee OR orange juice! Service was minimal and generally indifferent.

This hotel was party central while we were there. I can only guess they rent the facilities out for events. We were booked for 5 nights, left after 2. The first night had a party going until well after 4am. You could still hear the music thru the door. The second day had a boisterous birthday party beside the pool. They advertise free wifi throughout, but we could only get it at the restaurant. Upon inquiring, the gentleman at the front desk replied"it isnt working?" Inferred that they were short staffed and busy... he would get to it....we were still waiting when we left. The wait staff were great, the room was clean but could use some updating.

The hotel is very good, clean and centrally located.The pool was great. The staff are all excellent, friendly and extremely helpful. There are many members of the team speaking a little English. The staff will help organise tours from the hotel. The restaurant was good with a reasonable selection on the menus and everything we ate was good. The breakfast which is included was the same traditional type but staff would find alternatives if they could. One member of staff especially, R alerted us to having overpaid by a large amount so we found a trustworthiness which was exceptional. Thank you. Remember it is possible to use both USD or local currency but be careful with converting.

We didn’t make the reservations for our stay so I’m not sure how this place was chosen. The booking was under one name for two rooms. First the positives: beautiful location, right on the water. Lots of birds for viewing. Very nice staff. Sadly, that’s the only nice thing I can say. The TV and air conditioning worked and there was a apt size fridge. Now the negatives: we were given Room 10. The room had two full size beds. The mattresses were thin, crunchy, and generally not good. The linens on the bed were old. So old it was hard to tell if they were clean or not. Not even remotely inviting. The bathroom did have a new toilet and sink, but the toilet DID NOT HAVE A TOILET SEAT. There were no glasses for drinking, no nightstand or lamp. Only light was a ceiling light. The other room was a two room newer building that had two king size beds, beautiful bathroom, new linens, etc. The price paid for both rooms was identical but there were no similarities to the rooms. This property needs serious updating.
