We had to stay here overnight to catch our flight out. I wished we had stayed here a few days. It is nothing over the top great, but the hotel is across from water and some rooms have ocean views, it is clean and tidy with no weird smells like some budget hotels have, no mildew in tub, nice balconies, the front desk staff are warm and friendly, the pool is clean and nice patio furniture. The lobby and common areas and rooms are well kept. Not hotel chain style decor, but decent and clean. The a/cs are loud but no louder than any other window unit in a hotel and they do have fans. We arrived early, a few hours before check-in and they scrambled to get us a room calling all the cleaning staff to find out where they could put us and did not seem bothered to do so. A lot of other hotels would have just told us to wait or come back. We had breakfast included which was really nice and worth it. Big breakfast portions and restaurant looks onto the water. We saw spinner dolphins jumping in the bay across the street while we ate and service was v. good. This bay, by the pier which is a 2 minute walk is a great place for kids to frolic in safe waves and great snorkeling too. We saw a sea turtle and there were tons of fish. I just can't see why you would pay a lot more for another hotel unless you were staying for a week or more. But for a few days, this is just right for the price. My only complaint is that the beds in the standard double rooms are doubles, not queens so a bit small for two adults. Wi-fi in big comfortable lobby is just fine too, no need to pay for room access. I would definitely stay here again.
