The hotel has a really nice view of the sea.. The room service is poor.. Poor water supply to the bathrooms.. The staff are friendly and helpful especially during emergency situations.. I enjoyed my stay there anyways .

The staff are really friendly and the cafe view is amazing. The rooms are not bad but the bathrooms and beds need to be more clean and need maintenance. I spent 6 days and i wished i could spend more time. And for sure one day i will return back.

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.
