We found this hotel through Lonely Planet and knew it would be pretty basic and situated on the beach.
The LP recommendation was written in 2009 and needs updating; just like this hotel.
The rooms are crying out for some much needed care and attention, or a lick of paint and spruce up at the very least.
Some of the lights and the cd player in our room do not work, the pillows are uncomfortable and nasty and the bathroom looks a little grubby.
We have a fridge in our room at a surcharge of 5 bucks a day, plugged into the only available socket that's situated in the bathroom, so we can't fully close the bathroom door.
Does the hotel not understand the health and safety implications of having an electrical wire near water?
The only redeeming feature of this place is that the restaurant serves good food, albeit a bit pricey after all the tax and gratuities added on afterwards.
We were really disappointed to see that the hotel doesnt have a properly set-out designated sunbathing area by the beach, no umbrellas or any kind of service.
Hawkers prowl up and down this beach all day and night, acting like annoying pests.
This beach has a sketchy vibe that's bearable, but would be so much better if little changes were made, both inside the hotel and how they choose to manage it outside as well.
