Amazing staff!
Amazing staff, genuine, kind and attentive, for this reason alone I'd be back. The hotel is basic but very well done. Things to improve: soundproofing of rooms and amenities, serving light lunch or dinner (especially on Sunday's when only McDonalds and Burger King are open) would also be great but understand it may not be feasible.
