    Not great facilities. Staff not very helpful. Room too hot to sleep. Bed very uncomfortable- poor quality mattress. Fan VERY loud, even with earplugs. Woke up to a huge cockroach climbing up the inside of my mosquito net at 3am and never got back to sleep. Handy for the beach and nice courtyard. Not very social.
