Positive Reviews

Great for Guests on a Tight Budget

Many guests who stayed here found the price unbeatable, so they made it their hotel of choice when they wanted to enjoy the beach on a budget. Judging from their experiences, you should leave satisfied if your goal is to stay in the area for a price that's as cheap as possible.

¸A Fantastic Location

Guests loved being able to walk to restaurants and shops while staying here. They also reported that the airport is about 20 minutes away by car, so you can theoretically go straight to the hotel from the terminals to start your time away.

Close to the Ocean

The oceanfront location was a definite highlight for many guests. Some said they were able to see whales from their rooms while others remarked that they loved the constant soundtrack of the crashing waves.

Negative Reviews

Very Basic Rooms

Guests were sometimes disappointed that the rooms did not have air conditioning or televisions. The accommodations aren't luxurious, and many guests realised that in advance. However, some expected the rooms to offer more in terms of amenities.

A Poor Wi-Fi Signal

Most guests were able to connect to the Wi-Fi while in public areas. However, there were frequent difficulties when trying to get connected from the rooms. Furthermore, even when guests were able to get online, they often found the speed was painfully slow and made it hard to get things done.

The Accommodations Look Tired

Guests remarked that the accommodations are quite run down and not very appealing. Most guests were not too bothered by that though, given the other benefits the hotel offers. Besides, staff members report that renovations are planned.
