      We called the hotel to reserve a room, the representative that took my call let me know that there were lots of rooms available and that I didn’t need to reserve. Just come to the hotel, no problem. After travelling to the hotel we came to the front desk. The rep at the desk spoke no English and our Spanish is not very good. She told us that if we had no reservation that they had no availability, then translated again with her smart phone that the hotel had no rooms available. We told her our story and she again told us there were no rooms. I asked for her supervisor or someone that we could explain to us in English. Another employee came to the front desk. After explaining our story and that we needed a room for two nights, he also confirmed That without a reservation, that they had no rooms. But, he then offered a king room at an exorbitant cost and couldn’t explain how they went from no rooms to having an expensive room available at 4x the cost. We declined, went to the lobby and went online, booked a room and returned to the front desk again to show that we

      Never again.

      We would not stay there again. Customer service was not great. The rooms were very clean however there were none of the usual amenities like water glasses, hair dryer, kleenex, coffee maker, tv controlller or a/c controller were provided. You had to get the tv and a/c controllers from the front desk and return them upon checkout. Breakfast was ok.

      Great Little Hotel

      We stayed a few days at this hotel due to a medical emergency. The staff were very supportive and went out of their way to help us. There are a several restaurants in walking distance as is the beach. The pool is great and never busy. Would stay here again.
