Fodor's Review

This formerly dismal hotel has had a recent makeover with many improvements, including air-conditioning in all the rooms and spruced up interiors. The huge hotel pool has been repainted, and thatched umbrellas now make the windy beach more inviting. A crumbling, concrete sea wall, though, is still an eyesore, but it does keep the water a little calmer for swimming. About half the hotel's bungalows and rooms are now in use and they have been painted in cheerful tropical colors. Interiors have been freshly painted, with new wicker furniture and twin beds that are simple but fresh. All rooms now have safes (extra charge). The bungalows have one-, two-, and three bedrooms and there are also attached rooms in a row facing the beach. The best bungalows are Nos. 94 through 97, closest to the beach. This all-inclusive hotel has a large dining room and some evening entertainment on an open stage by the pool. The dive center and the hotel's organized excursions are the best reason to stay here.
