The balcony door automatically locks upon closing...

What a great hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is lovely, has a beautiful courtyard, a nice restaurant and we had a wonderful room. Lots of space, with a sofa and fridge etc. Fantastic value for money compared with prices in LA.

Still an excellent choice! Things have only improved! Food, drinks (!), service and appearance of this charming place have yet improved, even it's hard to understand how! It's cool right now but more than pleasant.

The hotel is beautifully maintained and has a pond in the front that has fish in it and there is a courtyard on the middle of the hotel. The hotel does not have a pool, but just a couple blocks down the street there is the beach to go to, which in my opinion is way better than a swimming...
