Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is very beautifully decorated with paintings, sculptures, and eclectic furniture. They are affordable, do not charge a resort fee and WiFi is free. The only complaint I have is that the air conditioner in my room was too loud.

Stayed late Feb 2017 for five nights. Whilst not being budget it was cheaper than your big name hotels. We loved the hotel. Great convenient location, very close to the beach and bus stop. Incredibly helpful and cheerful staff. We had an issue with out rental car and the staff were more than willing to help; calling the rental company...

Overall, excellent stay. Hotel Staff (Desk, Valet, Housekeeping, and Concierge) were excellent, professional, and very courteous. Room was small but functional, very clean/well maintained with working A/C and mini fridge. Hotel appears to have been renovated within last few years. Breakfast was mainly fruits and pastries with coffee, tea, and pineapple juice. Beach gear (chairs, towels, bamboo matts, umbrella) available...

I'm not going to lie, the rooms are not the biggest but it was just fine for my wife and I, see if you can request a corner room they seem to have a little more space, the location is very hard to beat walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and just a minute walk to the beach. The staff...

We enjoyed the location. Room had an interesting setup...with beds back-to-back partitioned by a half wall. But the air conditioners on the windows were loud blowing smelly air. The breakfast could have used some yogurt or cereal or granola instead of so many varieties of breads/buns. I would have left thinking it was a half decent hotel except for the...

The hotel offers a resort-style service from welcome beverages to casual and shining lobby sitting areas to stunning breakfast. They also provide beach equipment including beach towels, mats, boogi boards and chairs. The room could be quite basic on the other hand, tight space for the amount per room. And no other facilities such as pools or gyms. They offer...

Excellent location, price, and service. The room was a bit small, but the morning buffet and the friendly staff more than made up for it. The car valet service was especially helpful as we were visiting family each day.

“Some room may have a section by the door for you to put your full-size luggage.”
  • The vanity is not useful. Water can splash everywhere if not careful
  • You can put your full size luggage here (if your room has it).
