    Great budget hotel right off the main drag and blocks from the beach. Room was basic but comfortable and clean. The staff were the ones who make the place worth returning!

    Hotels.com sucks at customer service!

    Did not get the room we booked. Complained to hotels.com and front desk. Nobody seemed to care. We opted for the most expensive room available and got no promised balcony or Mountain View. We were shoved in a hole of a room where all the smoke from people who actually had pouches/balconies would fill the room

    Basic hotel, good location. No frills, staff were pleasant. Room could do with and upgrade. Hotel OK for 1-2 nights, anything longer and I would look for somewhere else.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Expat hotel as name says it all. Great for short or long term stays. Good bed and linen which was suprising given age of hotel. Good aircon more importantly a good guard who was always awake and often walked the grounds at night. Good fairly priced food and coffee. Location says not really children friendly but seeing all the guest would not hesitate to have children there. Minus being lady friendly. Lol. It was popular with many returning guest. If I go back I would be one. Not a resort but a solid structure with a nice pool.
