We watched humpback whales from our hotel room. How much more do you want?! Ok - that said - washrooms are small. The hotel is generally dated but well-kept. We liked the 60's style place. After all if it was modernized, then it would cost a lot more per night. Location, location, location. The view was great and the price was excellent for the area of the world your visiting. Note, however, that there is no TV or AC and the rooms can be loud. Noise was not from traffic but from the waves, which were crashing on the shoreline just feet from your room - this may sound romantic but it is actually quite loud when you are trying to sleep. Pick this place if you like friendly visitors, ocean view, can live with a ceiling fan, and don't mind the sounds of the ocean crashing at your door. We loved it. We'd stay again.
