This hotel is modern, beautiful, and the staff is very pleasant and accommodating. The view of the bay and surrounding hills is peaceful and relaxing. The hotel is right on the beach, which is erfect fr walking. It is about a 10 minute drive to the downtown area of San Carls, but the hotel has a bar and there s a wonderful restaurant, Beneficio's, a short walk down the beach (you can also drive to i). So glad we came!
