Good 6.0
This hotel is in serious need of a makeover. Feeling very tired and a bit tatty. Bed was good and the food mainly OK but for the price it was not good enough. Great position on the beach could be much nicer.

Exceptional 10.0
The staff of this hotel are really friendly and helpful there is very few places to eat within walking distance at night if you don t want to eat in the hotel, there is a bus stop just outside which takes you into hole town which takes about 5 minutes at only 2 b dollars per person The beach and hotel grounds are kept superbly clean and tidy a really lovely place to relax on the beach the sea is warm but quite rocky in the water with some big waves at times would highly recommend this hotel and we would go back again

Best kept secret
Best kept secret . The property was lovely. Close to everything. A lot of things in walking distance. Bus right out front. Very friendly staff. Very clean. Comfortable. The worst thing was the WiFi, but with the crystal clear beach right there, I put my phone down and just enjoyed my stay.
