Positive Reviews

Staff worth their weight in gold

Guests couldn't offer enough praise for the amazing staff at this little hotel. They will assist with any questions about the local surroundings, and even call for a taxi if you need. Visitors found the staff have a solid knowledge about the history of the area, and will gladly help with witch local attractions are worth visiting.

Basic without the frills

Most travellers felt they got pretty good value for their money. The location is ideal for divers and even for those guests who enjoy a bit of shopping. The front desk will facilitate the rinsing down of diving gear, luggage storage and tour assistance. Guests loved this accommodation for its simplicity and economically priced rooms.

Lovely views

If you can, try to book a room on one of the higher levels. You will be able to catch a glimpse of the ocean, the boats out at sea, and the comings and goings of the little town of Hermosa. Travellers reported a calm relaxing vibe here.

Negative Reviews

Needs some attention

This quaint building offers all the charm and history, but lacks in the maintenance department. Guests reported beds that are well past their due date of replacement, air-con units that didn't work, and other appliances whose wiring was exposed.

Minor cleanliness issues

If you are looking for five-star accommodation with a daily house-keeping service, then this may not be exactly what you are looking for. Rooms are not spotlessly clean or tidy, but rather dusty, and some visitors decided to do a bit of a clean-up themselves.

Noisy all around

Soundproofing is not all that good according to several guests, and the noise coming from the bar during the early hours of the morning was just too much for those who did want to sleep. Bring along your ear plugs to avoid being woken up.
