This is a great place to spend your vacation. If you work hard and have a busy life stile, this is the perfect place to relax and forget about everything. Easy access to the private beach.During the summer season they have a promo, free breakfast.Best omelet ever cooked by Albano, their very friendly chef.

A travel agent assisting us with the aftermath of a cruise cancellation booked us in here, and it did not really suit our needs. Upon entering we felt like we were walking into an old TV series - taking a step back in time. It was clean, comfortable and very quiet but almost too quiet for us - it was... More

Wonderful stay, will definitely return for another stay. Pool is amazing and hotel is very quiet. Option to pay $20 resort fee or pay for lounge chairs only when used. This is an excellent option since most resorts charge a resort fee automatically whether you use the amenities or not. Complimentary breakfast is delicious with choice of omelets, eggs made... More
