Pros: Staff was very friendly, room was very clean, A/C worked, TV worked although most cable channels were watchable but not that clear, OCEANFRONT, very nice surf protected reef right in front of hotel (bring snorkel gear!) with quite a few soft corals and a range of fishes, secure/locked gate entrance, pool and jacuzzi looked clean but I didn't use.
Cons: Hotel's website needs updating as it has incorrect info, no complimentary breakfast anymore, hotel is in need of maintenance (peeling paint, rust, etc), away from everything (pro and con, depending upon what you want), while it is oceanfront there is no beach, no restaurant or bar, wooden lounge chairs had peeling paint that stuck to your skin.
Would I recommend? Yes, as a low-cost, away from the hustle-bustle alternative. Not really for a family looking for a resort. This hotel was probably very beautiful with a lot of amenities a few years ago, but is now a bit run down. Great if you're on a budget and are okay with getting what you pay for.
