The sheets on the bed had some marks. They were washed but old. We couldnt lock the door. I had to ask from one of the boys to come and help me but even for him it was difficult. The room needs renovation and more cleaning

We only stayed there one night but it was great, the room was big, we has A/C, it was clean and really close to the beach. The manager (Marc) is really nice as well. They even arranged a pick up at the airport, we really liked the place, and it was really cheap.
