situated about 10-15 minutes walk north of town this motel has super clean, great big rooms with full kitchen facilities and nice balconies at a price much cheaper than downtown locations Onsite owners Tony and Beth were also friendly hosts. Note that is it not a resort, so it does not have a pool. That is fine because we simply used the hotel as our sleeping and cooking base for 4 days when we were out all day doing our daytrip excursion around the island and sail boat cruises etc. Since most of these excursion head north, it meant we had the latest pick-up and also the bonus of the earliest drop off on the way back!
The one downside for this hotel was the traffic noise! The hotel is right against the main road which has an incredible amount of traffic including buses and trucks. Light sleepers (like me) need ear plugs. Sunday night is party night and is particulary noisy with traffic, music and revellers yelling until the wee hours of the morning but other nights were tolerable. Avoid Unit 1 if possible because the water filter/conditioner for the hotel is just outside the unit door and comes on at least one might a week in the middle of the nite with loud gushing/gurgling water noises for many minutes (I think this water pump/conditioner could be moved to a quieter location by attaching new longer poly pipe to the inlet and outlet ports?)
