Fodor's Review

For those on a budget, this two-story colonial-style building across from the black-sand beach is your best bet—in fact, it's as good as many that cost twice as much. Comfy rooms have private baths with lots of hot water. Rooms with air-conditioning cost slightly more. There's also a good outdoor restaurant.
