“Secret Hideaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

If you want a clean, well decorated, near the beach place to stay then this secret hideaway is for you. We were pleasantly surprised how well kept this multi-room home was. Conveniently located near beaches. Included in your stay, you can even use surfing and snorkeling equipment for free...now that's a great deal. Owners are super friendly and accommodating. We would definitely come back.

This hotel met all of our expectation. It gave us everything we look for in a hotel, a nice comfortable clean room, clean bathroom, good location, and good service. We enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely come back.
