The windows are massive, can be opened. Small balcony, but not really an issue cos of the big window. The restaurant is downstairs on the beach.... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my friends. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was spacious. Staff was very kind and helpful. Shared balcony had a nice view to the beach. The restaurant of the hotel was really good, allthough the staff was a bit lazy.

Just as is it said in the title, the location 10m in front of the beach is perfect. The staff is really helpful. Rooms are simple but clean, including mosquito nets. Restaurant just nearby serving good food.

We had a very pleasent stay in a nice, clean a/c double room at the beach front that still was quiet. Everything worked fine and we had a very relaxing time there. Staff was very flexible and helpful with information and they offered an attractive room rate.

We stayed for a total of 23 nights in SurfCity in December. We had a non AC room on the top floor. The positives: - the location. It's just a quick hop over to the lovely Black and White restaurant, and of course to the beach. For us, the location couldn't have been better. - the rooms were clean and... More
