Do you provide a shuttle to the airport and if so what does it cost. Thanks
do you have a shuttle service for the surrounding areas, such as beach??
Dear Estevo30, Yes the hotel does offer a complimentary shuttle service to places within a 5km radius. The beach is 4.5 Km from the hotel, so this would be included. The shuttle does run at specific times. Please enquire at reception for exact times.

"Improve on bathroom supplies, learn from other boutique hotels "
"You must have special rooms for people who want to celebrate their love ie anniversary,honemoon,etc."
"The rooms facing the road are very noisy all night so avoid these. "
"The room has good wardroom and the internet is fast, "
"Pack extra coffee and milk. No bottled water in room fridge so take your own."
