The hotel room was clean and the owners of the hotel were so nice. The room was small. The bathroom was really small and a very small shower. It was really fine for the few days we were there. It was very close to all the attractions. The owners of the hotel gave us great places to eat and beaches etc.
This hotel is a gem. Low cost rooms sometimes brings unusual clientele and this was no exception but the room felt safe and we weren't bothered by this too much. The room was clean and neat and the check in was easy and friendly. We would definitely go back.
