Special location as it is next to ruins. Some part is under renovation, so there was some noise. The Hotel told me before, so I was aware of it. The view is also very nice, the beach is quiet. There were some guests from outside...More

We used the shuttle - I think it runs in and out 3 times a day, at 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00 (ish). The hotel is only 15 minutes from Stonetown, so you can easily grab a taxi in town to go back to the hotel whenever you want.
