Luis was waiting for us and showed us to our room. We had booked a triple share but we were pleasantly surprised to find that Luis had been kind enough to upgrade us to a two bedroom penthouse. The place was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. It was a great location and... More

We stayed for 2 nights in blue room - it has a ensuite bathroom. The room is not huge but large enough for 2 persons - wardobe, small table, flat screen TV... More

We found the location excellent. Luis was very welcoming and even printed out a list of restaurants and bars he likes personally for us to check out if we felt like it - we visited a few and they were all very good.

We stayed here for four nights, and it was fantastic. Recently renovated. Comfortable beds. Great and quiet location. Friendly owners. Great price. The balcony rooms are bright and sunny. Short walk to beach and old town. Would definitely stay again.

My room was exactly as reserved. Everything seemed to be new. The wifi works great. It's quiet; only 4 rooms in the pension. I was given keys to the building, the front door, and my room. It was cleaned every day and towels and sheets were changed every two days (more had I wanted). It's totally centrally located - nestled... More
