The staff was nice but the hotel had seen better days. It wasn’t dirty but run down. The beach was very nice but a pain to walk down to (steep sand dune).

I think this place is awesome, although when staff helps with stuff seems a big intrusive looking at your luggage. They are watching to see what you bring rather than just helping you bring it in. The other thing is no microwave at all. Other than that great place.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Extremely outdated, bugs, and no A/C (air con)
I stayed here in late April 2021. The hotel is in a great location with it's own private beach. The hotel staff was also very professional and kind. However, that's where the pros of this hotel end. The hotel is extremely old and outdated. Many of the rooms say "renewal" room. Well, that renewal must have been 25 years ago. The room is outdated, smells old, and there are almost no wall sockets to charge your phone or computer. The only socket we could find is at the desk, but that will only charge one phone and it's not reachable from the bed. I believe the worst part is that we were both sweating in the room. The hotel is so old that they don't have individual A/C units in each room. The hotel controls if the air is hot or cold. It was 22C+ the weekend we were there, that combined with a south facing room and sunlight all day, we were SO HOT. The staff said sorry, nothing we can do. The hotel was currently set up to still use heat. They have no fans and opening the balcony doors isn't an option because there are no screens. Yes, the hotel also has NO screens on the sliding doors. So bugs will poor in as soon as you leave the door open. Finally, there was one cockroach in the room and spotted two in the hallways. We stayed on the 1st floor for the rooms with the terrace outside, but that was a bad idea due to the cockroaches.

Get the ocean facing balcony room and you will not be disappointed with your stay. The absolute best part about this hotel is the beach right down stairs. Sushi restaurant is really good too. Staff are nice and courteous. This place needs, needs, needs to update their bathrooms. At least get a nice shower head for your guests. Jeez. Overall, I would stay here again. Oh, and the dinner course at the main restaurant is meh.
