Nice hotel with clean rooms and very nice sweet for two couples or a family. Good restaurant with good drinks. Enjoyed the pool and being able to relax by it. Short walk to the beach. One of our favorite spots.

Had a great experience here. Roberto at reception was very friendly and chilled out. he recommended a great boat trip for us on the Kuna Vela. Rooms are basic but clean. Nice porch near the pool. Lovely pool as well and very clean. Very close to the gorgeous beach. Great value for money here, I would recommend this place.

Great location a short walk from the beach, the owners were very friendly allowing us to check in early during a very busy time. Air conditioned rooms, free wifi, and free continental breakfast. We enjoyed our stay.
