    Stayed in this Hotel on Saturday night. Beautiful room. Clean. Breakfast excellent. Lunch better. Staff very friendly and professional--especially the Manager Patricia. Great location--near town and the beach. Good value for money.

    Pretty average hotel, no frills. Rooms very old fashioned, heat blasting even though it was a hot day. A 30 min wait for breakfast. It's not that it was bad or anything but it wasn't a great hotel either. Good location, ample parking
