What a location
We stayed here for 8 nights and found it to be very clean with friendly and helpful staff, It is only 5 minutes walk to town with some rooms overlooking the harbour, so you can watch the cruise ships come and go. The breakfast is basic but satisfying. The pool is huge and a perfect temperature. The rooms are a good size and the beds very comfortable. We had an aircon room which made things a bit more comfortable at night. Most people staying there seemed to be business people which meant a lack of kids which made our stay enjoyable and pleasurable
Great place to be

A nice place to stay
I had booked a cheaper room with a fan and it was quite acceptable. As I'd seen nicer rooms on my way in I upgraded to a room with air-con. I was only there for 1 night but it was a very pleasant place to stay.

Nice and relaxing business stay

Full kitchen but basic accommodation
Executive Suite is a bit better than the standard room but not by much, still fairly basic. Internet is available but only with a cable so make sure you have an adapter if your laptop is not compatible. It is nice that the hotel provides all of the cooking utensils needed to cook meals from the market and grocery.

The Basics are covered
Fairly basic accommodation option in Vila. It has everything you need but no bells and whistles. Not idea for a business visit as there is no wifi in the rooms, only in the pool area and reception which close at 10pm so if you have to work late you will be hanging outside with the mosquitos on the benches.
