4/5 Good

Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms

I would give a 5 out of 5, for this one night stay except for some safety issues. The staff was great, room clean, all was as expected. The safety issues were that the bathroom window was falling out, and the stairs were uneven and slippery. My husband fell but fortunately he’s athletic and didn’t get too hurt. Overall it was a clean, easy overnight stay and I would recommend.

4/5 Good

great choice for short stay

Great choice for an overnight stay near the airport. Nice room clean with good AC. Only drawback was that there did not seem to be hot water. Nice breakfast included- served on the beach.

5/5 Excellent

Stayed for a night before transferring to resort. Pleasantly surprised. Airport pickup and drop off was seamless. Decent beach to stroll on. Breakfast served on beach. Room was ok, nothing special. Perfect for our quick overnight stay.

4/5 Good

Nice breakfast, helpful staff though not everyone is good in English; Water pressure of shower is not enough, some window locks r broken, curtain not blocking light effectively and difficult to slide;
