It was small, with 2 shelving units for clothes or other storage and a small chair. I used one of the shelves as a desk for my laptop computer and that... More

Relax... everything going to be great. They were welcoming and ready to help in whatever was needed. Location is perfect. Walking distance of beautiful beach (good waves) and also of local shops, restaurants, supermarket...... More

We had a fantastic two day stay at hotel meli melo. The hotel is very clean, stylish, and located 100m from the beach. It is run by a charming French couple who were a pleasure to meet. Excellent surfing lessons are available. Restaurants and shops on the doorstep. We will definitely go back.

Nice people who helped with everything we needed. Place is very clean and good vibe. Excellent location near the best surf break, restaurants and market. Good value for price. The outdoor kitchen that is shared by everyone is comfortable and convenient.

Melanie kindly accepted my booking although I was unable to pay for a pre booking on paypal due to connectivity issues. As soon as I arrived, I knew this holiday was exactly... More
