Let's be honest... It was ok and I probably shouldn't complain or expect too much, but I have to say it didn't quite meet my reasonable expectations. The room was basic but comfortable enough. I was pleased there was hot water; however, it only came out as a little trickle. Fortunately there's another cold water shower head which is larger. When we were there we were unfortunate to strike a power cut (which didn't affect everything in the area, which makes me wonder...). Fortunately they gave us a candle and soon after the lights came back. BUT it was still disappointing that there wasn't much hot water and later the cold water ran out too! (This kind of frustrating experience makes for bad reviews!) The door in the room said check out was at noon, but when we went down around 11.15, were told it was actually 11. We were just given enough time to clear out of our rooms but managed to pay to extend it by a few hours (whether or not that was worth it for our own cold shower, I'm not sure). The staff were helpful enough but not overly. It was good that there was free WiFi and bath towels (and do I need to mention toilet paper?) but that's about it, as they didn't even provide a piece of soap. Good for basic accommodation if you're happy to put with anything. Oh, on the positive, the location is very good as you can virtually step across to the beach.
