4/5 Good

Liked that it was steps from the beach, bar and restaurants.

Stayed 4 nights in Aug 2019

5/5 Excellent

Loved our stay

Just lowered the condition down a bit because the small things were missing - hair dryer (should have brought our own), no hangers in the closet, lack of plugs near beds. Again, small things. Overall though, we loved it!

Location, location, location!

This place was great! Right in the hustle and bustle of everything you want/need! Your own private beach, a bar on the beach just for guests, restaurants in any direction you walk, and the rooms are 100 steps away. The rooms are small & a little out dated but kept clean and that’s all that matters! AC worked great after a long day in the hot sun too - and that is important!!
