5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very well maintained property consisting of the main building and detached and semi-detached homes. They have a swimming pool, a tennis court and are located in a quiet scenic area, very close to a small but beautiful beach. All rooms have fully equipped kitchens or kitchenettes. It was my second time at ANC Experience and I'd definitely stay again.

Agreat place for the $$
This is a cute boutique hotel nested in the very center of the city. Easy access to everything including free parking. One thing i would ask management to investigate is a tiny humming noise outside the room where i stayed, it kept me awake part of the night.

Travelled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Room was spacious. We only had a short stay so didn't have an opportunity to explore all amenities. Staff was friendly and courteous. The only small thing was that the hallways had a residual smell of cigarettes. Otherwise, we were generally satisfied with our stay
