Only three rooms at present but hoping to expand.
We stayed on bed and breakfast basis. They do offer half board also. Meals are very basic with little choice. However from other guests there we understand the evening meal was acceptable.
Location is out of the town, but less than five minutes walk from the beach. The access road and surrounding property does leave something to be desired. However once on the property it is like an oasis, with a pleasant garden on the riverside, with the owner offering to take guests on a river trip at their convenience. The garden is frequently visited by monkeys and birds that are worth watching for.
The biggest downside were the dogs, although very friendly they did smell and once they had been around the bad odour lingered.
Overall a pleasant place to stay at very reasonable cost.
