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.

5mn away from Santa Teresa beach, simple and clean rooms & bathrooms, lovely terrace and hamoc - perfect for a relaxed, and easy stay - you can rent a surfboard, get drinking water, and ask Melanie & Fred for any advice and recommendations. Simply perfect.
