The hotel is an amazing treat! Nice rooms, excellent spa facilities, massages and night hot tubs highly recommended. The food at the restaurant is also amazing and they let you bring your own wine! 15 mins away from Enbalse Puclaro, it a pradise place to come back after a day of kite or wind surfing! Will come back for sure...
