We had VIP style treatment from the owner who couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. The rooms were completely updated and spotless and the breakfast was a nice surprise. We would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay close to the beach.

The owners are very friendly & make you feel so welcome. The room was clean & bed was very comfortable. We would recommend this hotel to our friends & family. The hotel is close to restaurants, the beach & a beautiful walkway along the boulevard right by the beach.

Everything we needed for our brief stay in SB. Friendly, clean, with an amazing home made breakfast. Its family run, has a pool, rooms are arranged on verandas surrounding the pool and courtyard so no soul-less never-ending corridors of the big corporate hotels. a little bit of luxury a stones throw from the beach. perfect.
