Staid here for a night on a layover, seemed like more fun than remaining at the airport.
The inn appeared to be very well kept. There were lots of nice spaces for hanging out. Our room had a view of the ocean, which was nice, and despite the road between the inn and the beach and it being Friday evening, it was quiet, for the most part. Thanks to the high ceiling in the room, we didn't even need to turn on the air conditioning.
The neighborhood was pleasant, and there were several restaurants within walking distance. There were also a lot of gates and barbed wire. The beach wasn't very wide, but clean, and nice to stroll (or cycle) along. Too bad there's no decent public transport to get to the old town.
Breakfast was fine, but could be better. The wireless Internet worked well, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
The taxi ride from and to the airport took us about 10 min (no traffic) and cost a bit under $20 each way.
