Set on well landscaped patch of beach and in a building whose decor and surroundings give the feel of a homestead in Namibia from early in the last century, this place is worth checking out.

The food is definitely expensive here, but every bite is worth it! They made bacalallitos that were perfectly crisp and light. The fish dishes were all perfectly cooked and everything was spiced exactly as it should be.

Make sure to try the seafood salad. Additionally, the drinks at the bar were extremely generous.

Reservations recommended; dress is "island casual"

We didn't stay at the hotel, but ate at the restaurant and found the food mediocre, the drinks were bland and tasted very artificial and lastly they charged an automatic 20% service charge (read the fine print). It all felt like a hustle.

The location is beautiful, but the place is not very well kept. It could be a great place, but is not recommendable right. A change of management could do wonders for the place.

Beautiful place and the view spectacular but the food was horrible. The worst dinner in my life and the service was at most mediocre. The steak was burned and the lobster totally insipid, the risotto tated metallic. Did not order dessert as the food was so bad. we were not motivated. . Go to another place there are may in the malecón.
