Stayed here for four nights at the beginning of august. Location is convenient - a 5 min walk to the restaurants etc overlooking town, and isolated enough so you don't hear too much traffic and crowds. On our arrival the man at the reception was stern but nevertheless helpful in issuing us a map of the town centre and recommending us some places to eat, drink and visit in the island.
Our room was pretty basic - but it had a nice location overall at the back of hotel and overlooking the pool so you can come and go as you please. The bed had clean sheets and clean towels were provided. Housekeeping also came every day.
Shower facilities were decent and overall the room, while clearly a bit rough round the edges, did the job. We hardly spent much time at the hotel so it was a good place to rest our heads. Air con was welcome and the little balcony was a nice place to chill after hours. Swimming pool was also a nice place to relax.
As other reviews have mentioned the breakfast was a little bready. We only had it once (mainly because we didn't wake up for it!) and it consisted of a cheese and ham toastie, more toast, a slice of cake (!) yogurts, orange squash, and (cold) boiled eggs. An uninspiring meal but otherwise filling.
Overall a pleasant stay, you get what you pay for really. Not sure I'd stay there again but it does the job!
