Lack of communication from staff lack of proper instructions on how to use the internet and misleading information on so call 'free internet' I had to pay $8 dollars on my credit card to use it as every time I tried to use the password they gave me it said it was expired and since when we first got there, there was no electricity and the phone lines where down I could not asked and since we were so annoyex that we went out for a drive to get fresh air and try to clear our heads,when we came back there was not secure onsite parking for us and I had to end up parkingon the street near a park which was close by, on top of that we were a couple trying to rekindle our relationship and I asked for a queen bed and received 2 single beds put together which kept us apart as it was too awkward and uncomfortable to get romantic with a parting in the middle I get the lack of view since I di not make sure to previouslt arrange it but we could not even get out and sit in the tiny are they have set up as the massive airconditioning unit is there blasting hot air The room was ok clean but I would never ever recommend this plece to any other person. We work had for our money and is so heartbreaking when the one day we choose to actually go and enjoy ourselves ends up giving you more stress then you went there with..sad so very sad.

Lovely comfortable convenient well appointed

Very nice space, stunning view, walk to everything. Clean with everything you need. No second key offered, staff seemed pressured but otherwise very happy with everything overall. Great restaurant/ bar just downstairs with excellent food, great coffee & juices and offers happy hour bar prices for early birds. Beach accross the busy main road - it didn't worry us - surf club near, stroll to shops and short walk to Hotel/ Supermatket. We will come again. Weather wasn't on our side...

Nice hotel close to everything

We had to check in after hours and reception staff were very responsive to emails with instructions on what to do once we got there. We were surprised by the size of the room and still had a beautiful view of the beach even with a garden view room. Would definitely book again.
