          No doubt the best place for the price!! The rooms were clean cool and comfortable. The staff was more than helpful and made us feel right at home. Just a couple minutes to the beach and close to shops and restaurants.

          I cannot see why this place would be rated weii. It was cheap ,$55 for two. the neighbor was making noise all night. Road noise no ac, ants all over, no parking on the grounds, these are my reasos for a bad review.
