Eat here. Don’t sleep here! Great location in the middle of town. Hotel resto has lovely food and attentive service. Hotel is mediocre but safe and clean enough. I stayed one week, but this is not a four-star hotel. It’s situated in a vortex of noise thanks mostly to a neighbouring disco that’s open 9pm – 3am. every. single. day. Earplugs barely muffle the noise. The music is stupid loud, and the hotel’s walls are paper thin. And, there’s even more noise to contend with: live music in the restaurant some evenings; construction noise starting early morning; street noise from cars, all-terrain vehicles, and delivery trucks; scraping noises from the hotel’s metal roof (tree branches? monkeys?). Hotel staff is great except for one who asked me what I do for a living. Don’t ask your guests that. It’s none of your beeswax! Even rocket scientists take vacation, okay? The hotel maintains vestiges of its hostel past. The rooms are long rectangles with 11-foot ceiling. Rooms are in surprising disrepair, or perhaps this is the result of bad renovations. Water in the shower is tepid but plentiful. Got a towel change halfway through the week, but I could not get staff to sweep my room of sand even after two promises that it would be done (it’s a beach town!). The hotel’s pool is small and sad, but the beach is a 5-min walk away. Loved the room’s metal door and deadbolt for safety. Wi-Fi worked reliably and so did cable TV so I could barely hear the TV over music from the disco!!

This was a very disappointing experinece. We really looked forward to our 3 nights and now wish we never stayed there. The room was clean but the bathroom was disgusting and stinky (terrible sewage smell). There were old used bars of soap on the shower wall, a dirt ring in the toiler bowl, and someone elses stuff was left on the bathrooms door handle containing toiletries. There was no hot water. Luke warm at best. And terrible water pressure that it was impossible to shower after a day at the beach. No shampoo/conditioner, just a bar of soap. The room was advertised to have a king and queen beds. The king bed was hard as the floor and our backs started hurting from sleeping on it. The queen bed was actually a double and we couldnt use it instead of the king because it was too small. It was also impossible to fall asleep or stay asleep because the club right next door had parties until 3am everg single night that even earplus didnt drain the noise. It felt like the party was literally inside our room. The hotel staff did not give us a heads up about it. The reception was supposed to be available for inquiries via whats app till 11pm but when messaged to inquire about the noise, our messages werent even acknowledged at all. Not even the next morning. The staff were very friendly and the included breakfast at the cafe was delicious, but unfortunately not worth the price we paid for the hotel at all. We'd have rathered paid for breakfast than stay at this place.
