I stayed with a couple of friends at the hotel and enjoyed it very very much.
To start with, the beach is literally at a 2 minute walk straight up, also the price we got charged for the room was more tan reasonable for what it had to offer to us... The pool area is somehow small but enough to chill and it´s actually good to meet other people.
The pool bar is nice to chill during the afternoon or just after a cool surf session. The room is well set up with surfboard holders, small fridge, water glasses and other facilities. The hotel has a nice approach towards water conservation and Joellen, the owner is one of the nicest persons to deal with.
The staff members are helpful and friendly, food at the restaurant is delicious and you get free coffee too. No complaints at all.
The reservation process was somehow slow for me as I had to do it over email but it was not an issue honestly,
