“Not impressed”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Good location. Beach just across the street. The room however not so good. Dirty tub, No hand towels and only one key. I mention this to the staff who really didn't seem to care. The one hand towel was delivered to the room as well as the tub being cleaned. But we still only had one key. The drain plug in the kitchen sink was filled with leftover food from the previous guests. We left the room for the entire day to return to our room with no housekeeping done. I mentioned this to the staff and the reply was "They are cleaning the rooms now.": and "that they have had 9 rooms to clean today". It was 6:30 in the evening at this time. I said forget it. No housekeeping was done. I was totally disappointed with our stay. I enjoyed the view from the 3rd floor and that the beach was across the street and beautiful.

Good location, beach across the street, if you are on the 3rd floor you have a view on the sea, price affordable, clean but absolutely not luxurious, small but clean not heated pool. On the bad side, if you do not ask for towels replacement or any service, there is no room maintenance at all during your stay. Since it's a humid area due to ocean proximity, you will always have humid towels and clothes, no dryer machine or anything. Bring some dishes and your own wine glasses if you do not want to drink your wine in a jam jar converted into a glass... Otherwise, we are not demanding people so, we would not hesitate to rent a room here again in the future... Since there is free wifi, Im written this review from my room. To anyone who is reading this review, Enjoy your vacations at the beach!!!
