My husband, sister and I spent a week here. After reading the previous reviews I was anxious that it would be unacceptable (we usually stay at 4 or 5 star resorts). We were pleasantly surprised as the resort and unit was clean and quiet. There is a restaurant right at the resort that caters for breakfast and lunch. Their prices... More

My husband and his two sisters visited this wonderful place for 17 great days in May 2003. The first nine days we stayed at a bed and breakfast on top of the hill overlooking the beaches and city. We were able to see lots of the local people and culture. We found great favorite spots-Jaunito's for one and the Calima... More
