We've stayed here several times and have come to associate this place with peace and quiet. Located a bit back from the ocean away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist traffic, such as it is, it feels more like a farm in the country with it's gentle hills and open pastures. There's usually a gentle breeze wafting through that keeps things cool enough so there's no need for air conditioning. You just hear the rolling surf and the birdsong most of the time. The property is clean and well maintained. The continental breakfast is good enough with lots of coffee, fruit, and cereals. Easy walking distance to town.
Beautiful grounds, blissfully quiet. A place you can unwind with little lacking in the comfort department.
Getting our room cleaned each day was inconsistant. While we got new towels each day I dont think the room was vacuumed or the sheets changed during the few days we were there. We aren't dirty people and are pretty easy going but it was a bit disconcerting.
