When we arrived the owner and his staff were there to greet us and they were very quick to take our luggage to our room. The room was huge and spotless there was a good size flat screen a king size bed and to make things over the top cool was the private balcony over looking the ocean. When booking the availability to switch up your bed sizes are quickly dealt with. The whole hotel and the attached restaurant are always clean, friendly well organized, and the topper: SAFE. The owner is great, friendly, helpful and a blast to talk to. He seems to deal with any thing coming his way with manners and respect. Our two week stay was great and we would for sure go back. The beach is a 2 minutes stroll away and the taxi service is great. For those that like to walk it is easy to get right in to the hub of Fifth Ave that is great. If you do not like the all inclusive vibe and prefer your own thing I would say give this hotel a long look at. They have this great roof top terrace, that has hammocks a thatched roof gazebo and a bbq. The view is perfect for as long as you wish to stare. For me it was a least a few drinks from the restaurant on the ground floor. I say just go.

Room Tip: Studio rooms have 2 private balconies, the standard rooms have 1 private balcony.

Room looked even nicer than the pictures online. Great balcony overlooking the water in the distance. Cute open air restaurant downstairs. Felt very safe and friendly staff/management was very safety conscious, not even allowing one of my unannounced visitors to walk up to my door. Steps from the beach. Easy check in/check out. Great communication with owner prior to trip. Great deal.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views but be ready for some steps.

I stayed for three nights in this little hotel off the beaten track. It is conveniently located - about 300 m from the beach, BUT it is a hike into the center of town. But cabs are cheap.

The rooms are spacious and clean and the little restaurant serves a nice breakfast (that is included in the price) and has also a fairly large lunch and dinner menu.

So, if you prefer it quiet and don't need to be in an all inclusive resort or in the party zone, this is the place to be.
