Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Well maintained small family hotel close to many beautiful beaches in the area. On road with truck traffic but the garden/pool side is quiet. Mostly local clientelle when we were there, no loud Americans. We liked that. Downsides: breakfast was OK quality but little and very basic.
