Positive Reviews

Gives a good value

The rates of the hotel are quite reasonable and, for that rate, you'll get a clean and comfortable room. Some rooms have microwaves and refrigerators, adding to the value. There's also free parking and free Wi-Fi added to the deal.

Short walk to town

The hotel is located just a short walk to town with dozens of restaurants, bars, and shops. It's also possible to walk to the nearby beach and marina. An evening out for dinner is an easy stroll, but you'll also be away from the noise of a busy tourist area.

Sweet and cosy

The accommodations provide a cosy stay with some modern touches. The rooms are spacious and the air conditioning gives a nice relief from the heat. The staff is very friendly and works to make each stay a pleasant one.

Negative Reviews

Kitchenettes lacking in features

The term "kitchenette" might be an exaggeration, as guests won't have access to a stove or cook top. There is also a limited supply of glasses and mugs. Don't count on having any cooking or serving ware.

Beds are hard

You won't be sinking into slumber here. These beds are rather hard and it can be hard to get a good night's sleep. If staying for an extended time, you might want to think about bringing something softer to lay on at night.

Some things that make you frown

The rooms are a bit dated and the features and fixtures are prone to breaking or not working. The Wi-Fi is one such example. While it is available, don't expect speedy and reliable service. Other examples are a pool that needs chemical touches and maintenance and a staff that closes up shop promptly at five.
