We stayed here for two nights in two adjacent rooms (Kevin and Candace room). At first it seemed at bit musty inside, but I really loved the place! It is exactly the atmosphere you’d expect from a beach house. Besides it was also very spacious: Downstairs there was a large living room , kitchen and extra toilet. Upstairs we’d find...

The hotel is tired and could do with being updated and painted. The hotel is at a good location and near to a good restaurant above a garage forefourt! The hotel food is good and the owner a friendly kind person.

Additionally, they also recommended a local driver/taxi service who met us at the airport and organised a further trip down the coast the next day. The room was very spacious, overlooked the sea and was...

A medium sized guest house that includes all the comforts you could want. A magnificent sea view you need to get used to the sound of the waves on the shore. Well fitted out large room and bathroom with a nice big bed. Adequate breakfast with some "medicinal tea" offered to one of the party who was struggling. Great location...
