Service was great. Food was good. My air conditioner leaked into the room though. I felt very safe as a single traveler while staying here.

8/10 Very good

Highly recommend this hotel.
Fantastic location very close to beach and old town. Pleasant well maintained grounds and pool. Staff helpful and efficient. Only downside was no tea/ coffee in rooms. Mainly older people and a few families with small children so nice and quiet if you want that type of holiday. 1/2 hour drive to the airport so easy access and good roads to get there.

Fantastic hotel!
Amazing hotel! Starting for the location right at the beach with access to the old town and strip, all in a walking distance. The staff was lovely and helpful. The pool, mojitos, everything was absolutely perfect.

6/10 Good

I feel like chicken tonight
On arrival pleasant customer service. Unfortunately though was somehow expecting to see a kettle and microwave in the room but we had to go to the Bar when the restaurant wasn’t open for hot water to make a drink. If you like fish everyday then this is the ideal place to stay. Was ok until the 3rd day, then saw some chicken by the fish👏. Most of the staff would acknowledge you but there’s a few not so nice especially in the restaurant. Breakfast could be a bit more varied same everyday. Not sure if I would return, but location was good easy to get to Old Town just a short walking distant.
