On a main road, but when you close the windows and door you can't really hear the traffic, good soundproofing. The back windows open to neighbours behind the motel, could hear their conversations until I closed the windows, but again not a problem if closed. A modern air con unit is also installed. Room (single standard) was small but has everything you need. Nice touch with the usb port next to the powerpoints. Nice clean bathroom, looks new. Large selection of teas, coffee granules and hot chocolate included, provision of kettle, plates, bowls, cutlery and nice mugs. No actual kitchen or kitchenette, no oven, just a cabinet/shelf unit for these items. Also has large closet for storing clothes and luggage. Would recommend for short stay if utility and practicality is your priority but not for longer arrangement is you want a place to 'hang out' as I would get a little claustrophobic, again, unless price, location and practicality/utility are your only or main concerns. In the room they also have a collection of menus for nearby reserautns that are pretty much next door with a large selection. Close to the beach and the blowholes. Also have pre-packaged supermarket style meals for purchase at reception.
