2/10 Poor

Not even 3 stars- hotel is falling apart.
We could hear the shower in the room next to us the pipes were right next to the head of our bed and it sounded like an airplane taking off, I was so loud we couldn’t sleep. The room was also falling apart, peeling paint, splintering doors. This was definitely not a 4 star experience, not even a 3 star experience. There were moldy curtains in the dining room and water dripping down on me from a moldy hole in the ceiling near my table.

Tiny room, not like the pictures on here
Room tiny and much worse than pictures on this site. Holes in the wall in the bathroom. Can hear the lift bell everytime someone called it, very noisy room. Air conditioning works well but very loud.

Short walk to the beach
I love this hotel for the location, staff and value. This hotel however needs a ton of repair. Water staying ceilings, haphazard painting etc. It takes away from the ambience.
