We booked a deluxe room and enjoyed a wonderful view of the ocean except when the trains stop (see pictures of the view with and without train). A minor point you may think until the first train pulls in at 04:30 and I defy anybody to sleep through that or in fact any of the trains that pass at regular intervals thereafter. If you stay in one of the basic rooms at the back then maybe you will not be disturbed but at all cost avoid the deluxe rooms or the suite.
The fridge in the room has to be seen to be believed so take a look at the photo and draw your own conclusions. The towels must have been in use for over a decade. Our deluxe room did not have a TV (and there are none in the hotel) or a safe. There is no wifi and the hotel will charge you 3 times the cost of the local internet cafe to sit in a hot dark room at a very old and slow computer. Forget eating at the hotel and just walk to the place opposite for a very nice lunch or dinner. The photo on the website is the suite room.
One of the worst places we have ever stayed
