This hotel is fairly central to the various town amenities and not far from the harbour, however it is not suitable for totally wheelchair users as there are 2/3 steps up to the reception and the dining room and 2 steps down to our "Superior" bedroom, (were not able to be given an accessible room near to reception etc as earlier requested by my travel agent) and no ramp able to be provided. Fortunately I am able to walk a short distance and my nephew was able to lift my wheelchair up + down the steps. I had also requested a kettle/coffeemaker in my room but this was unable to be supplied on arrival but able to purchase for 2 dollars a flask of hot water to take to the room. Our room did not have an extractor fan in the bathroom so had to have the large top window open to let out the steam from the shower,and which did not have a insect repellant screen attached so intruders could get in if desired through the window. Fortunately their was air-conditioning as the patio doors could also not be opened in case the various cats, hens + birds ventured in as they were many + freely roamed the hotel grounds. The breakfast was satisfactory but if you wanted an evening meal you had to order it in advance and appeared to be limited choice. We chose to eat in the various local restaurants locally + our favourite was by the harbour(can't remember the name) but sitting on the patio you could watch the surfers in the sea. There was local supermarkets on the main street but no fridge in the bedroom for snacks/drinks etc.
We also had a problem with the fact that after ? 4p.m. ish during our stay the reception staff did nt seem to speak English, so if there had been an emergency in the evening we could have had a problem.
Overall if you are fit + don't expect to high a standard(in the Superior rooms) the hotel wassatisfactory for a few days stay.
