“If you want a quiet restful vacation near clear beautiful beaches then this is the place for you.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The villa Gaivota was a wonderful clean spacious townhouse. The view is amazing and the beaches are literally on either side within 5 min walks. Wonder quiet restful vacation full of walks, reading and swimming.
