This hotel is run by a great Dutch family that takes so much pride in their work, you will love this hotel! It's alongside the ocean, great little beaches, beautiful pool, two wonderful restaurants and on and on..... Located just blocks from downtown Punda and about 2 miles from the Sea Aquarium.

New room had ant problem which got worse and we ended up having to move rooms again. Beach and ocean are beautiful, but beach is very small. Breakfast was good... More

We stayed in the Blues Wing. The view was amazing. Each morning was special, being awoken by the beautiful sun and the veiw of the ocean. The ocean was great to swim in. Only down-side was the tiny ants that occupied the room. The gym at this hotel was- perfection! Food and drink prices were too inflated for the quality!... More

We were on the second floor and had palm trees partially blocking our ocean view. On 3 we would have been above the palm trees. My 20 year old niece... More
