  • 2.0.Poor


    Nothing that was adverised is available. Kitchen and cafe closed due to covid. Not walking distance to anywhere so this was a main seller for us. City views? Its a 2 story building backing onto a swamp??? My city views were looking through the massive tree that was half covering the balcony leading the spiders and ants straight to the room, where they had set up shop all over the place. King bed was 2 singles pushed together. No bikes for rent. No walking trails. Man at the desk was more interester in shaming me for not booking direct through him. We stayed a total of 12 minutes, packed our things and booked a different hotel.

    Great modern property not far from the beach. The bathroom floor and door were quite filthy.
