          No tv or any extras of any sort. Not for a family with children. Out dated and hot!!!There is a very busy road right infront of this small hotel. Very steep stairs with low "safety" walls and unsafe railings going up 3 steps of stairs to a family room makes it a nerve wrecking experience every time you leave your room. Beds are slept through and you can feel every spring. The manager speaks no English and the lady just wants your money. Don't take breakfast as it is much cheaper at all the other restaurants on the beach and includes very little food. The AC is very low on power and the water pressure in the shower is so low that you cant even rince your hair properly. The staff wake up late and you have to wait for them before you can get a cup of coffee. The kitchen is open and dishes and food left all over, covered in flies. Breakfast will be cooked for the whole hotel on a 2-plate stove! There is no tv, no kettle and no fridge. There are much better properties for less money closer to the beach who can actually provide you with all you need.

          One minute walk from the beach ”

          There was a small mix up with our booking that did not have anything to do with us or the hotel. The staff handled it well. We stayed in a big room above the main entrance overlooking the street. We got a good night's sleep. No horns blasting and there was no traffic later on in the evening. The breakfast was ok. Some steep stairs to get to the second floor but I think they have rooms at the street level as well.

Wifi didn't work for 2 days, kind of annoying, We kept asking them to turn it off and on again but the router is up so high on the wall so they didn't until our last day and then TA DA it worked. Clean and comfortable with good breakfast. I like it!

          Overall this hotel is not bad. Just that they need to improve on their breakfast. It is just 3 mins walk to the main beach at the back of the hotel. At night tourist can enjoy seafood at the main beach. But remember to ask for discount and compare at few stalls. Will come back again for this hotel.
