The owners of the place are very nice. I can tell they are hardworking people. This place has so much potential! I hope they keep working at it. The room was pretty small and shabby. I would be OK with that if it was completely clean, but it wasn't. The bathroom vents steam into the room (and the dirtiest thing in the room is the long rectangular "window" between the room and the shower). The balconies were nice and clean and they do have a view. I would suggest bamboo screens between adjacent balconies. A little paint, better cleaning, and small things like baskets for soaps or window box flowers... Consider giving people small discounts for bringing things like that to you from the states. Breakfast was simple and quite wonderful. We paid one hundred seventy five dollars per night and that was a little steep for this down scale accommodation. The neighborhood around the hotel has a bad reputation but the immediate area seemed fine. Oh yeah - lots of steps to get to the bottom floor of Galleon House (but good exercise). Herve Restaurant seemed a little out of place - it is right below Galleon House but it is much more upscale - highly recommended place to eat. Overall, I could recommend this as a 2 star place to stay, just know what to expect - it's a place to sleep while you spend most of your day and night doing things on the island. We stayed at a much nicer place after Galleon House but we payed almost double.
