I spent there 5 nights. Great price for a good simple room with an AC and a clean bed and bathroom. Location is great. Friendly staff. The cafe offers a great sea view. Very good hotel for budget travelers.

Great price for a good simple room with an AC and a clean bed and bathroom. Location is perfect. Staff super friendly. Food is really good with a nice sea view. They organize trips to Blue Hole, Blue Lagoon and other places with suitable prices.

A great place overall, perfect location and the staff was extremely friendly. The rooms weren't so great however they were working on upgrading them as they changed the beds during our stay. The daily excursions are reasonably priced considering the average pricing for the area and the rooms are dirt cheap. Definitely worth checking out.

I stayed there for 5 days. Very cheap and reasonable place. The cafe is really good to sit in and read and have a drink but the food is not very good. It is better to go out and get some shwarma or anything for that matter
