The place is just off the beach, with only a dive school (TDC, where we did the open water course) in between. Being almost on one end of Tekek, the place is also quiet (but then, Tekek isn't really noisy).
We stayed in a non-AC room and it was pretty good. Clean sheets and bathroom, and a handy broom to wipe away the sand you will drag in with you. Hot water in the shower for those who want it.
Basic breakfast included in the rent. Free drinking water (which is bizarrely unusual in most of the country), as well as tea/coffee at the reception lounge. There are also tons of books if you feel like reading but didn't carry your own.
Everyone behind the counter is friendly and helpful, though the counter itself officially closes in the evening (6 pm or 8 pm, don't remember).
All in all, well recommended if you are on Tekek and don't mind spending a bit.
