Rooms are not superclean but ok. Good beds and tv. Food is ok. Bad wifi, no hot water and the condition of the water in the swimmingpool is bad! The water is green, you don't see your feet while in the water. It's overpriced like...More

Came for the hostel, could do everything through them for a great price. They even provided goggles for the sand buggying! Big TVs in room was a great change from normal hostels. Hot water and clean rooms!

The family, who runs the restaurant opened up a hostel adjacent to it about a month ago. Stayed there for two nights and were quite satisfied. Nice and clean rooms for a decent price. Staff was friendly but a bit pushy regarding tours/general sales.
