Photo of AB Motel
A newer building sits right on the main road and opens up onto the beach, while the cheapest rooms are housed across the road in newly re-modelled buildings. The rooms are all of same standard, the difference is that there’s either one double bed and a single bed or two double beds in each room, giving a hint to the hugeness of these rooms. So in short, AB is clean from top to bottom, peach colours (again) dominate, rooms are apartment-sized and there’s air-con, hot shower and TV. The only thing that’s not included is breakfast -- and be warned that the bathrooms are poorly ventilated.
