For what we paid to stay here, we got that and more. I'll be short and sweet by saying that the rooms are just enough and always freezing cold (which is nice in this heat). Despite the cheap rate, the rooms are very clean (if not a smidge run down). Everyone who works here was extremely nice, the food was delicious, simple and cheap, and the view of the marina is fantastic.
Lucky for us, it's walking distance to the beach, SCUBA diving tours, other restaurants, a gym, the bank, a grocery store, hotels, more beaches.... etc. In other words, utterly and conveniently in the middle of everything without being in tourist central.
I've stayed there twice now and have never regretted it. The one and only downside is that there is this tree right by the rooms that must house hundreds upon hundreds of birds. Don't plan on sleeping in... these things are so ridiculously loud that unless you have earplugs, they'll get you every time.
So, if you're looking for no frills or thrills and just a simple, casual, comfortable place to hang your hat and sit your butt for a while... this is definitely the place.
