Small and quaint
No air conditioning but you didn't need it. Small and quaint. Nice location and price. My only complaint is that I wish they started breakfast at 7am instead of 8am. They also could do a better job with their coffee too.

8/10 Very good

Clean, comfy rooms. Basic, but it's got all you need. Staff are amazing; everyone is very kind and goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. We got a tour around the general area after check in and they helped with any and all reservations for taxis, excursions, etc. Breakfast is delicious. So much fruit! Very good. One and only downside is the heat - there is no AC and there is unfortunately not much breeze going through the room. The ceiling fan helps, but only so much. If you don't mind the heat, then this is the perfect place.
