The staff here was very friendly. Adrian was awesome, and put us in touch with his brother Juan Carlos for our awesome boat tour! And the owner John was lovely to visit with during morning coffee. Our room was clean and comfortable, and we were only one block off the beach and one block from main street. The pool was...

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate about the music on main street, and we've asked them to turn it down a bit, especially the Base, but to no avail. It also depends on the time of year as to whether or not the music is loud. We do hope you come back again!

We had a great time there. Rooms are clean. Food is great. Staff is friendly. Adrian who works at front desk and the bar is great. Would go a mile to make your stay perfect. Just ask him for anything. There are a lot of activities around. We stayed for 11 days and it was not enough.

While it may not be the fanciest hotel, it is clean, great service, a beautiful outdoor restaurant pool -- and at a great price. The restaurant also had great food and drinks. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others looking for a nice and affordable spot. We even had a balcony in our room, and you...

We picked this hotel because it was close to the beach. What a nice surprise it was to find. I think it is an older hotel, every room had it's own style. Super clean. There is a grocery store also that is open 24/7 and that was great. Adrian was the sweetest, always had a hello and a hug. Veronica...

Great place to hang out in the afternoon, early evening for a drink, or to eat. The food is good. Not a luxury hotel but clean and the people are very friendly. We live in the area so we can go there to hang out without staying in the hotel but suggest to friends for a nice clean less expensive...
