“Beautifully landscaped older property on the border between upscale and down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Because of the many activities going on in the area, I got shut out of the hotel in which I intended to stay. Since every property had jacked their rates up, I took a chance on hotwire. This property is very close to the beautiful properties that line the beach, but just outside that neighborhood. It is surrounded by retail, and an older apartment-complex-gone-condo. The desk staff was outstanding, the landscaping was absolutely beautiful, with lush tropical vegetation including coconuts, ferns, and more. Parking was very limited, and the overflow in the back, through a somewhat rickety fence, appeared kind of sketchy. The room was old and simple, the bathroom fixtures were new and very nice. It was a bargain price, the room was adequate and quiet, so we were well pleased with the choice.

I spent three nights at Hotel Biba and found most everything of very high standard for the price with one or two minor caveats. On arrival and throughout the stay the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The single queen room I had was clean and well maintained and there were no stale smells like you get in some hotels located in humid climates. The room worked very well for one person, although I would have welcomed a bit more space to put things, like an additional table or nightstand. The bathroom room had a large shower stall and some of the rooms I understand have jacuzzi tubs. The breakfast, which is included, offered a good variety of things, but there were no eggs in any form. The rooms are quiet at night. Free parking is available. The only problem I encountered was with the door key card which was very finicky, requiring almost a magical touch to get it to work properly. This may just have been unique to my room. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay and would definitely stay here again, hoping the weather would be better so I could actually use their lovely pool.

When reading the reviews of this hotel, I decided to make this trip. I wanted to stay as close to the beach as possible for a reasonable price. But the room that I got was far off of what I expected.
The service was poor and the room was not clean, that is it. Luckely I only had booked for 1 night.
The bed was ok, but not great by any means. Maybe I was only unlucky because I booked via booking.com. I already experienced more often that you get less service and rooms when you book hotels via them.

Room Tip: Try at least the more expensive rooms.

For the girls trip with my daughters I wanted a safe unique experience that wouldn't break the bank. Found it here. Location was easy to drive to different locations--I would say having a car would be a must when staying here. Decor was quaint and unique. Desk was very helpful with restaurant recommendations and service. Loved the continental breakfast. Rooms were clean and well tended during our stay. Staff was helpful. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: It is a little on the small size and our bathroom only came with a shower so don't over crowd th...

This looks like an old motel which the owners have tried pretty hard to bring up to date, sadly its still an old motel at heart. The grounds are very well kept and attractive and the rooms are minimalist!. Its adequate for a one night flying visit. The location isnt brilliant either however the staff were very friendly and accomadating. It probably needed be just a little cheaper than it was, maybe my expectations were a little high.
