Lovely room, right on the beach! Excellent location and service. Lots of noise from 2nd floor room above ours, 2 boys alone in the room bouncing balls and stomping endlessly, that took away from overall enjoyment.

It is a nice hotel with a ot of charme. Liliana, the Hotel Manager has the understanding to feel like in heaven. Looking forward to our next stay there. I like to use the kajaks and bikes. Perfect is the short walking distance to the beach. You can do barefoot.
