2/5

Website is misleading.... only shows tower building...does not show motel like rooms. Room was really small, esp. Bathroom, needs a major renovation/upgrade. Lots of rust and dust in room, thin walls. Had to pin curtain to close huge gap. Otherwise anyone passing by could see inside room.

Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019

4/5 Good

Stayed 5 nights in Oct 2019

2/5

Horrible experience. Walls in room are paper thin. Woke at 6:00am from chatter in the next room. Lively and loud music at the pool started at 8:00am! Not exaggerating. Breakfast was good though.

Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019

4/5 Good

Beautiful resort and beach. Some rooms are a little dated but still great money spent. Will visit again soon!!!

This is a motel type accommodation,pretty run down. The pictures are not accurately represent reality. It is in a good location on the beach. Would not stay again.
