    We enjoy fishing and the location is excellent. Part of the property was under construction but it was not a problem at all.

    I fish from this Marina and this Hotel provides all the amenities that I need. Right on the water, small, the restaurant is on the pier, watch the sunset or get up early and watch the sunrise to a good cup of coffee!! I love it!

    Value for money.

    Good, clean location overlooking the bay. Friendly staff and decent restaurant. The only downside was the beds were a bit hard and the pillows were not the greatest quality. Very reasonable rate so good value for money.

    Pleasant stay

    There is no beaches in a close proximity to that mini-hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room and bathroom were large and clean. Small parking lot.
