Lucky tuna 'boutique hotel' says the sign hanging out front.
This is not a hotel, but 4 rooms above a bar/restaurant.
Set right on the beach, the rooms are spacious, with a beautiful view & nice bathroom with fancy jet shower.
However, the shower is freezing cold, the towels and bedding are dirty, mismatched and ragged (with mould, stains and holes in), there's nowhere to hang clothes and the balcony chairs are ripped and filthy.
The worst thing is that there is no housekeeping. No one cleans or makes up the rooms, or provides clean towels. There is no reception so if you need anything (like a brush to sweep up the sand you've trodden up from the beach) you have to ask one of the waiters, who are running around busily serving in the restaurant. The room quickly becomes dirty and an attraction for ants.
They are trying to charge $110 and $90 per night for the rooms, and no breakfast. We got them down to $80 but regardless of price, an establishment claiming to be a hotel must provide some level of customer service. They do not. You pay your money and are effectively left to fend for yourselves.
The staff are friendly, but are busy running the restaurant.
The other problem is the noise. The music they play until the last customer leaves, whilst not overly loud, is really bass-heavy and reverberates through the floor, and kept us awake.
Competing music from nearby bars feels like some kind of torture technique as you can hear 3 different songs at the same time from your balcony, driving you slowly insane (although in fairness there was a 10pm 'til dawn party a couple of bars up the beach, so it wasn't all lucky Tuna's fault).
Overall, this place could be fantastic if they had dedicated staff to run the hotel, cleaned the rooms, provided decent linen and bought some new towels.
However, at the moment these are just rooms to rent above a restaurant, and the price should be severely reduced to reflect this.
