A very basic hotel. I loved the view from the balcony. The hotel has free WiFi. It was sometimes iffy from the room but better in the restaurant or front desk area. I stayed in Room 1 which was nice because it is overlooking the bay, next to the stairwell so no neighbors, and not directly over the bar/restaurant. The noise from the bar did not bother me. Every time I went down, there were only 4 or 5 people around and it was pretty quiet. The first several days I think I was the only guest around as I did not see anyone. Several other guest check in a couple of days later I think because I noticed more people coming and going from the building.
The cleaning staff was very friendly. The front desk staff so so. They do rent cars for $55 to $65 a day. Recommend the SUV if you want to drive around the island. It is has more ground clearance.
The power did go off every morning for several hours. It was unusual because when I walked around town, other parts of town had power but not the hotel. Not sure if is the hotel or how power is supplied to that part of town.
The room was clean. Room 1 has a full size refrigerator and a sink with cabinets. I was not sure what the cabinets were for as they were no plates, pots, or utensils at all in the room. Bathroom was ok. It had running water when ever I needed it. The towels provided were really small. The bed sheets were ok. A little abrasive but adequate.
