When we got there, Candice (the manager) immediately made us feel at home…Very friendly, she spent time giving us tips on where to us where to go, what to see… We also had a great time speaking with her and her husband who is the Chef and prepare delicious meals (Chez Moi Restaurant).
The bungalows are clean, large, comfortable and very nice (equipped with fan and AC). The swimming pool and gardens are very well maintained and really beautiful.
The whole staff is great and friendly (thanks Nicolas – the Barman). A special thanks to the owners who have invited us to a barbecue with their friends!!
If you like big resorts with standardized room without any soul ….don’t stop there because it is just the opposite. It is a place to relax, chill out and lay back….
There is also Laurent (Lolo), the surf instructor, Candice’s friend who can provide surf lessons….he brought me to uncrowned beaches and we had epic surf sessions with him and his wife.
For me “The Place” is the spot to be in Mal Pais – Pura Vida!
