My husband and I were traveling on our honeymoon and stumbled across this place which turned out to be one of our happiest accidents of the trip. It was very reasonably priced and gave us a little of the resort feel without the sterile overly-touristy environment or the high price of an actual resort. The two level pool, the little swim up bar, and the attached restaurant were all major benefits in our eyes, considering that we looked at other similarly priced places that offered few if any of these features. While there were a few improvements I would recommend to the staff (brighter lighting in the room, a clock in the room, the availability of beach towels for rental) I feel like this place was still quite a find. But if you're a very light sleeper bring earplugs, as the sound of cars backfiring up the steep hills woke us up a time or two! I think youd deal with this anywhere along this street. Even though it was slow there, the owner, Mike, was very attentive to seeing if we wanted a beer or needed any advice any time we passed by or went to hang out by the pool. Oh and he opened the restaurant up just for us one night and cooked us a special vegetarian honeymoon dinner which was fantastic! As a breakfast lover I think another perk of this place is that you have your choice of four different breakfast options included with the price of your stay! I would definitely go here again.
