It's a very old building. No elevators. So if you get a room upstairs, or downstairs you have to carry all that yourself. That was very hard on us. Check in was ok but can't check in until 4pm regardless. The pool wasn't cleaned until the 5th day we were there. So it was nasty. The rooms were clean. But I saw roaches on the floor when I got up in the middle of the night. It's cheap. So I guess you get what you pay for. No excuse for bugs though

I liked the fact that the beach was withing walking distance. I did not like that there was no water spout to wash the sand off your feet upon returning to the hotel grounds, there was much sand in the pool, the mattresses were too soft, no soap or shampoo was provided and I could not connect to the internet.
