What an excellent place to stay at a reasonable price! Loved it.

Property is a bit older but nice. Rooms are quite large.

Very professional staff. Breakfast was nice. The room has a fridge. A safe is present but using it may require a fee. By dong Thanks.

Loved this hotel, great location, awesome amenities and clean. Great staff overall, but disappointed with the service from the restaurant on property. Restaurant manager was accommodating and made the dining experience end on a positive note.

Would not allow us to check in 2 hours early even though we were checking out 12 hours early

The smell coming into the hotel was very overwhelming. It was a mix of suntan lotion and fragrances. The room overall was nice, very roomy. The couch was a bit dingy however, the room was open so the TV could still be watched from instead or gaze outside to the water. There was a small fridge that we were able to keep drinks and snacks in. It was about a 10 minute walk to shops and restaurants.
