A small beach side hotel with a quiet calmness close to three beach side restaurants and within a five minute drive of numerous quality restaurants. Limited breakfast buffet and pool side snacks. The staff are very helpful and caring. We visit this hotel twice a year because of the atmosphere and the caring , friendly staff

Been using this hotel every year since 2004. Excellent quiet location with beaches near by. All staff are excellent especially the long serving ones (Philipe, Pedro, Katrina, Jose, Ana etc). Already booked again for next year.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel in mid august and it is by far the best hotel that we have stayed in.
