        Great hospitality”

        The staff were attentive and helpful. They were also very flexible with our check-in and check-out time. Our breakfasts were delicious and especially mine were flavourful (as I requested "super spicy"). The small things that my husband pointed out and complained about were the hard bed and mosquitos. But otherwise we had a great stay and will most likely return to Buffalo on our next visit to the island.

        Stay here you won’t regret it!”

        Stay here, you won’t regret it! - Very good vibe/energy - Extremely friendly staff that welcome you on arrival with a nice drink and some advice. They really take their time in a no strings attached welcoming way. - Great breakfast (you can pick from the menu) -Clean rooms/nicely decorated -Airco works really good Only downside is that it’s not on the beach but in the “town”, but that’s also why it’s more affordable, so it’s a choice. The beds are really good quality, but for me a little bit too firm.
