    Beautiful place to stay but it was a bit hard to find. The place was hidden behind a garden wall with a small address number barely visible. Other than that, I had a good time and would stay here again.

    It’s a good location to get to places within walking distance like the beach, restaurants, etc. Anywhere else you’ll need to take the taxi. The building is secure which is nice. The room I was in had ceiling fans which made up for no AC, but the only problems I encountered was the noise level at night and early in the morning. Guests seem to not care if you’re sleeping or not and there was a blinking noise coming from outside. Also, no hot water in the shower which I wasn’t aware of.
