We stayed at this hotel at the end of May, and the hotel was about to close for the slow summer season. So there were very few people staying at the hotel at that time.
The beach was very nice with white sand and clear blue waters. You could go for a walk along the beach for a distance. The location of the hotel is also good because you can walk to the small town, restaurants, bars, shopping, and historical sites.
The hotel overall was nice. It is a two story hotel with open air corridors. Each room has a balcony, and we had a nice ocean view. The grounds are well maintained with tropical plants and palms. There is one swimming pool which is fairly small, but it was never crowded when we were there. There was live music in the evenings, but the hotel was mostly quiet at night.
The food was good and fresh, but there was no buffet available and only one restaurant open for each meal. The choices were very limited, and they would sometimes run out of the most popular options. There were almost no vegetarian options. Breakfast was our favorite meal.
Overall, it is a good option for those looking for a good value in a good location. The all inclusive option is good because the restaurants in the area are expensive, but be aware that there is not much selection at the hotel restaurant.
