You can't beat the view and, the hotel is at a very peaceful spot, exactly what we were looking for. However, there are some points to be considered: you do need a car to have access to this location. The room I stayed at was very, I mean, very outdated.

There is a beach within walking distance from the hotel (Praia Brava) but you can only get there on a short period of the month... More
