I really do not know how people say good things about this place. I am a local Traveller who had stayed in many local places like beach shacks and air bnbs. Never I have faced such issues as mentioned below for the amount they charge 1. No water pressure in the showers and 2/4 days more than 16 hours there was no water. 2. There is no proper cable connection. Only 5 channels were working with static background. 3. Bed sheets which were provided was extremely rough and literally scratches your skin. 4. Had to request many times even for the water bottles at the time of checking. Received only 2mini water bottle for the four day stay. 5. The whole hotel is old and falling apart with old furniture and etc. Since I have stayed in many difficult situations while I travel I thought this was manageable. I was utterly wrong.

I stayed here 3 nights. Main advantage is it's very close to the beach. just cross the rail tracks. Room is spacious, but still there are certain things they can do. Their strong point is I think the staff. They are really helpful, professional and very friendly. overall my stay was OK.
