The hotel was very well maintained, and beautiful. It was very conveniently located, and felt very safe. The best part though was all of the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The girls in the front office especially where such an asset to our trip, they helped book trips for us, called taxis for us, answered all questions we had, and helped us understand the currency. They where truly amazing. I would definitely recommend staying here, and I would definitely stay again.

Nice quiet time during our mid-week stay. We felt like we had the place to ourselves. We were welcome in a warm manner by a young men whom I forgot the name and After waiting around for 1 hour while they tried to fix our air conditioning, we were given an upgrade and very much enjoyed being closer to the amenities. Staff was nice and respectful. Sunrise surfing school was very good with beginner. Sun chairs near the beach and bar could really use replacements. Restaurant offers simple tasty dishes. For a longer stay, more flexibility with breakfast choices would have been appreciated.

It's a nice hotel, clean room and a nice pool. Breakfast is simple but served outdoors near the pool and beach. Check in guy was not really friendly but everyone else was great. Beach is kind of dirty, with some trash and debris but it's pretty typical for this area. Surf board rentals were really cheap and there's some good surfing waves too! Plenty of beach and pool chairs, pool was clean and maintained. Great value for the area.
