The staff is very friendly and always willing to help with anything... More

I stayed in 2 different rooms and both were very big. I especially liked the outside sitting area on the roof. There is a kitchen that the guests can cook for... More

We didn't anticipate staying more than a month, but three months later we are still here! The place is fantastic and the staff are wonderful, especially Chary, Claudia and Willie. Chary's welcoming smile is enough to brighten... More
