I really loved the location of this hotel. It's near enough to the beach and still close to all the restaurants and a few steps away from the market.
Service: was really nice. The receptionist told me that it was her first day when we checked in but I would have never guessed. The owner (I'm assuming) continued to ask me how my stay was going, and he seemed very friendly. When we ran out of gas in the kitchen, he went out and looked for a gas tank for us even though the kitchen was technically closed.
Room: I really enjoyed the rooms. I was in a two-bedroom room with a full bathroom, and I paid extra for air conditioning, which was a good choice. It was clean, useful, and spacious. And right in front of our room were a bunch of hammocks and a sitting area and right next to those there was a pool area. Overall, very nice. BUT, when we went one more story up (3rd floor), at the staircase, there was a strange and very unpleasant smell and I hope they fix it. But it's a minor flaw anyway.
Facilities: The kitchen was rather small, and some of the other guests really packed it before we could even start making our dinner, which was kind of inconvenient. But the dining area was really spacious which made up for the small kitchen. Also, the wifi does not reach to the rooms upstairs, which I found kind of inconvenient since I had to walk downstairs every time I needed something. Also, it cuts off at around 10pm, which means no internet until they plug the router back in the next morning. I didn't really see a point in restricting internet usage like that.
Overall: Ver nice stay, very good quality for the money. The owner said we were the first of the "hostel" groups he accommodated and it was a really nice stay.
