The hotel was centrally located so that we could walk to town and eat at the local restaurants. We also had an opportunity to walk along the water. Breakfast was complete on the weekend and a more limited buffet on weekdays.

Yes. There were hair dryers. No there is not air conditioning. There are fans for the day and windows to open at night. No screens, but no bug problems while we were there.
