    Spotlessly clean room with high quality linen, low key friendly staff. Advertised as 3 star, probably deserves more. Centrally located and is a great base to tour the island from. Highly recommended for budget conscious travellers with or without family.

    My boyfriend and I stayed for one night. Perfect location, very friendly and helpful staff, rooms are very clean and quite spacious. The wi-fi was a good, strong connection. Other than thin walls, no complaints at all. Will definitely come back.
