I spent 1 night here with my boyfriend and some cousins. We had an amazing time and wish we could have stayed longer! Sergio and his staff were incredibly welcoming! There were tons of really sweet dogs on property too. In the morning we enjoyed a nice family style breakfast, the meal included fresh fruit, eggs and coffee. My favorite memory was playing cards outdoors with the sound of waves rolling in the background. Could really see myself staying here for a month if my schedule allowed it but will be coming back in April 2017!

Quiet, relaxing and close enough to town to get some excitement. Breakfast was good and staff treated us well. Lots of hot water, fluffy towels and everything in the room worked. There is a small bar on this property if you want to have a quiet drink, owner was friendly enough that we played board games with him and he let us win....

My wife and I stayed at La Gondola for 1 week and loved it. The owner Sergio is a great guy. Very accommodating and welcoming. We had an immediate connection to this hostel and its thanks to him and the family who run it. I can't recommend this hosteria more. We met other couples, family's and singles staying here. Just steps from the beach (like 5!) and a 5-10 minute walk to the town center. The bar on site, Mar Arena, has a great atmosphere. The owner Sergio (same name different guy) is an incredible chef and really makes you feel welcome. This place is the trifecta! Great rooms, great bar, great beach!!!

We spent 3 nights here during carnival and should have stayed longer. This place is like camping on the beach in some Gilligan Islands huts. We loved it. Nice, safe, grounds right on a great beach for playing in the waves. We would come back here. Very comfortable atmosphere. One of the only places in town with shade. Nice caretakers. Be sure to confirm reservation a few days before you arrive. (Even if your reservation says "confirmed")This is standard practice along the coast, especially around holidays. This place is a nice distance from town so that it is quiet at night, yet close to all the restaurants and great music etc. in town.

I won't anybody recommend to stay at this accomodation. The worst thing is that the rooms without aircondition are very humid and smell very bad. We couldn't sleep at all because it just was so uncomfortable. Also it is not very clean. There were hair in the bed and everywhere was sand. When I asked to change the sheets the staff was very unfriendly. The "receptionist" gave us a special deal (5$ less), the cleaning lady then told us that it's way to low and we don't get breakfast because of that and we need to clean the kitchen completely after using it. We didn't feel welcomed at all. Also there was this bar (James bar) at the premise. There were the same drunkheads every night, watching american TV very loud. We didn't feel comfortable and didn't enjoy sitting on our terace
