Ocean view from our balcony
Front desk staff were so kind and welcoming, especially Tony. They stowed our bags and kept them safe until check in. Any questions we had were kindly answered in fluent English. The restaurant next door offered 2 for 1 drinks and a discount on food with a hotel stay. We were greeted and welcomed whenever we came and went, even by housekeeping. Wi-Fi was very fast and we were surprised to find that our balcony had an ocean view. We will stay again!

2/10 Poor

Horrible hotel and amenities
Horribly preserved hotel with pictures that are not recent or accurate. The room had huge mosquitoes in it, and the pool looked nothing like the Photos. We checked out immediately, but the hotel refused to refund the night. This should be a one-star property.

Location + clean + good service = Yes please
This is the third time I’ve stayed here. I will say I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to hotels—just give me a clean room in a great location with a comfortable bed. That is why this place is so great for me. Very good for the budget traveler that just wants to be in the PERFECT location and have a nice bed to lay their head down at night. I highly recommend for those travelers that will be spending most of their time exploring the beauty and charms of PV!
