Only offered a beautiful of the ocean
Hotel and rooms condition are really outdated and dirty. Room amenities are limited and poor quality. Bring your own soap, toilet papers and shampoos. Too expensive in comparison to the room condition and price. Lot of trash near the beach parameter surrounding the hotel. The beach however was gorgeous . The location is very remote with no real eating places nearby.
