The place is clean if you don't look too close at the corners and at the edges under tables and bed. Spacious room. Hot water worked. Not too noisy. 3 pillows per person. Downstairs is a nice garden restaurant "EJ's garden by the bay" with live music. But it's not the usual idiotic volume and its really nice music. So...

But for me the deal breaker is being able to sit on my balcony and watch the outrigger fleet come and go. The place is...

It is decent enough. Don't expect high luxury. Room is just big enough. Plumbing and air conditioning work. The restaurant across the street is good. No pool. Staff is accommodating. Breakfast is good.

We booked 2 rooms and when we found we were not on same floor, the hotel...
