    Nothing special. Clean room with a balcony. About a mile from the city center. We walked it. A nice 20 min walk along the ocean. Has a pool. But I didn't use. The beds weren't that comfortable, but for the price I would definitely recommend

    Shoal bay is just down the road from accommodation. It isn't patrolled but the water is very still and calm.

    Do you have a safe please?
    13 February 2016|
    Answer
    Response from Sally P | Reviewed this property |
    Apologies but I can't answer that. We did not require the use of a safe and therefore paid no attention as to whether there was one or not. Maybe you need to contact the motel direct to obtain an answer. Cheers.
