Great location right on the beach. Room was a decent size with a bath/shower, fridge, A/C, lockable safe, free Wi-Fi and clean. Buffet breakfast was excellent with plenty of restaurants nearby by for lunch and dinner. A decent size pool with plenty of seating. Staff very helpful. All in all a good base to explore the island and excellent value.
