4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

The staff were very friendly and it was helpful that we could use the pool at a sister restaurant. The hotel is at the less touristy, more residential side of town, which may be off-putting for some people. The only real downside was the lack of air conditioning. Instead, I spent a lot of time in the hammock which benefited from the sea breeze. Fantastic pancakes.
