The reasons are
- it is just one block away from this dream beach
- It is in a rather quiet area
- Large rooms (called "suites")
- Rates are very moderate
- The value you get for the money is very good.
I've looked at some of the criticism in the reviews. Well, if you get a hotel room in an expensive tourist area close to the beach for about 120$ you must lower your standards. There are a few things where obviously money was saved: Just one elevator, a tiny breakfast room, no gym, and not everything is perfectly maintained. On the other hand: all the staff we met were happy and friendly people and they really cared. We had a technical problem and they got it fixed the other day. The breakfast attendant was very friendly and helpful.
Bottom line: Great place to stay if you can live with those flaws.
