3/5 Okay

Old style spartan rooms. Don’t expect much. Enclosed courtyard with pool. Well maintained, picturesque, comfortable . Good staff willing to help but you won’t be spoiled much. Located in a local neighborhood close to beach. Rare chance to experience the raw culture closeup without a big tourist crowd. Good food to be had at a variety of places.
