The location of the hotel was decent. It is at the end of a strip of restaurants and shops but there was no noise. It was pretty far from the beach; although, it was a straight walk (approx. 500 meters) through a very smelly alley to the beach.
The hotel was clean and very safe with your own safety deposit box at reception. They had a bad mosquito problem in December so we had to keep loading up on repellent at all times. The bed was very hard and uncomfortable. But the room was clean enough for a family so we didn’t have much to complain about. Quality of soaps was terrible so we had to buy our own.
The hotel restaurant was okay for breakfast with excellent coffee and custom eggs. However for halaal food eaters it was poor – almost nothing to eat for breakfast and there are only so many scrambled eggs you can have every morning. They were kind enough to make us veggie fried rice to help accommodate. There are small restaurants on the streets that serve cheap food and a couple stores like 7-Eleven for snacks. There was no fast food nearby, but the local cheap food joints were pretty clean and good.
The swimming pool was clean but cold and not too busy. There is a kids pool and Jacuzzi but neither were very warm water which made it hard to use. There was a pool table and large public TV however the mosquito issue made it impossible to use after sunset.
I recommend that you stay in the main building above reception as we had excellent internet connection for Skype and Facetime. I think the hotel was an excellent choice for families especially because there was hardly any noise at night, it was close to lots of cheap restaurants and you could kill a lot of time at the massage and nails places next door.
