Avoid this place. They were overbooked, and didn't have a room for my pre-paid reservation. Instead, they put me in a house next door. The room itself was dirty, had no towels and there was no AC. When we complained, the owner of the house and the hotel manager got into a fight and actually concerned for my safety. Others...

The room was ok. I had to keep the shades closed as I was on the ground floor and the pool was directly outside my room. The bathroom was not particularly clean or nice. The shower did not drain very well so I was standing in my own shower water. Also, the kitchen was across the hall from my room...

We booked this hotel, even though it was out of of price range, because they said we could check out at 6pm the following day as our flight was a late one. Then just before 1pm the manager visited us demanding we left within half an hour. We explained what his staff had told us and he got angry and...

You don’t get much but a basic room here. No TV, no tea pot, only a small closet. However, the room was clean and the aircon and overhead fan worked. There is free wi-fi. There is a nice pool and beach and plenty of lounge chairs if you want to lay in the sun. We did the Saturday night barbeque...

The hotel is located right on the beach in a great location but thats where it ends. The hotel is tired and dirty. The rooms are shabby and the bathrooms a health hazard. There is a mediocre restaurant located on the beach. The hotel is mosquito infested.

Maybe I was lucky. I just turned up and got a beach-front room (108) on the ground floor with double doors which opened onto a small terrace and the beach. I stayed for two nights in January 2012. The room had a good AC unit and was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and new and the shower was...

Stay away. Big gap between the website photos and reality. It's a good value only if you're paying under 50 USD and it's a brief stopover. They promised 75 but tried to raise the price once I got there. No hot water! And filthy! Needless to say, I moved out the very next morning. Luckily, The Icebear was next door.

I concur with the previous review, the pool & terrace area is finished & quite a pleasant place to spend an evening. The wifi is also up & running. I was part of a group on a 2 week tour that started & finished at this hotel. The rooms are inconsistent, some have been recently refurbed & are reasonably equiped,...

At the moment, this hotel is #25 of 27 hotels in the area and I ended up here out of desperation to find three rooms on New Year Eve. Now I see it got some harsh reviews a couple of months ago, mainly because the pool was being refurbished. I don't think it deserves such a low rating--and I usually...

This place SHOULD be an absolute gem...great ocean front views from the balconies, a sea-side bar and a pool/restaurant in similar back-packery, low key setting. It isn't, or at least it wasn't when we visited at the end of our two-week stay in November. The pool was being refurbished - probably now complete - but the staff failed to mention...
