Modern and confortable

Spent one night there last weekend. The staff were friendly, the owner showed us around and organised parking out the back for us, even after a 21:30 arrival. The room was recently renovated with a modern bathroom and a living room overlooking the bay. We'd definitely come back. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Central to all shops etc.

Pros: We booked for 2 nights as it was close to our venue.
Cons: Major clean up.
Location: Beach,fishing,walks.
Our room was tidy. Hot tap in bathroom basin was running,which I reported to staff. Smokers below us were coughing and smoking from 5.30am which meant we had to shut all windows.We asked to move but they were booked out that night.Staff didn't want to talk to those guests as it would be discriminating against them.Our friend had a ground floor unit and it was terrible.No ventilation and very musty,with mould over the ceilings.His room was also dirty.

A dead cockroach on the bedside table...

The room had probably not been used for months as the temperature on the A/C was set at heat at 30 degrees. There WAS a dead cockroach on my bedside table and the place smelt musty. There was also a sewing needle complete with red thread stuck in the blue curtains near the sofa. We were quite disappointed with our stay.
