Supereb Place for a Short Stay
I stayed for one night during a business trip. Conveniently located close to the main city. Room was exceptionally good. Ordered room service for dinner and the food was awesome. Simply a great place to stay.

beautiful views of the lagoon
great views, quiet location, friendly staff
Very good. From my room I had a beautiful view of the lagoon. I liked the quiet location, but still close to the city centre and the beach. The room was very spacious with comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly.

The most expensive transport in the world
Pool, setting by lagoon
The walk from the station to this hotel is less than 1 mile about 1.5 kilometers. I would have walked but had a large surfboard and management said that is no problem just ring when I arrived and I would be picked up. What was not explained was there would be a boss and a driver in the vehicle and the boss would demand from me $16 US for this trip. That said the hotel rooms are large and very nice and the location beautiful also lovely pool. Meals are fine. As for service there are young men everywhere but getting something done can be a bit frustrating as command of English is poor. You just need to be patient and try to communicate as simply as possible. For people who speak the local language arriving in own car with families etc this place is 5 star but for a foreign tourist it is a nice 3 star hotel with some teething problems.
