A large group (32+ people) stayed here for several nights as part of a tour. My husband and I had a twin room just off the main reception area on the first floor (behind the hammocks) - it was clean, but quite spare. No shade on the overhead bulb and no light at all back in the dark corner with... More

We stayed several nights here. 2nd floor, room 10. Expect street noise until 10-11:00 p.m. Overall loved this place. Little English spoken. But, breakfast included, location is central (big factor) - you can walk the main town, pool on the rooftop, laundry facilities, filtered water available to refill your bottles, clean rooms, nice staff. Hammocks, covered tables, etc... on the... More

Staff have no English (but who cares) but very nice. Rooms are comfortable with tv, wardrobe and bathroom is simple but generously sized and clean. Amenities!!!!! Shampoo, conditioner and soap in their own adorable packaging. Nothing in turn I'd far from one another but it's centrally located. Only bad thing was the terrible breakfast although the fresh juice was nice.... More

We stayed in a room with 3 beds and had plenty of room for our stuff. Room was clean, beds comfortable and always had hot water and air conditioning. Short walk to main port area with shopping and restaurants. Nothing fancy about the rooms but would stay here again.

Stayed here with a group of 40 travelers last May and I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. Comfortable beds in clean rooms, with adequate air conditioning. Breakfast was superb, buffet style. The roof top pool was small but perfect and the courtyard with hammocks was an added bonus. If you are looking for the Hyatt,... More

If you want Dorchester/DoubleTree/Savoy then head off and spend the money. If however you want clean, affordable and really friendly right in the middle of everything you need then this place might be for you. The staff don't speak English much (why should they?) but are as warm, welcoming and helpful as you can imagine. Our room was small but... More

I stayed here with a group of teachers and students. The kids really enjoyed the pool and the roof terrace. There was a lot of outdoor space to relax in...the hammocks were particularly enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent with fresh juices every morning. The rooms were large and comfortable with an abundant supply of hot water.

I stayed here for four nights in May 2015 as part of a group of 40 travelers. Due to a few negative reviews, I was not expecting much and that was OK with me; I think of myself as a low maintenance traveler. I was therefore pleasantly surprised by the friendliness of the staff, the high quality of the breakfasts,... More

The staff were friendly and helpful... the hotel was clean. The breakfast was amazing. The coffee superb. My son really enjoyed the pool. At the time we stayed we were the only ones there. We're a family of four and had two rooms. The hotel is a short walk to everywhere.
