    The staff are very friendly, very kind and ready to help. Unfortunately, poor knowledge of the English language. The rooms are nice, and have been made in the African style. Cleanliness is good. The pools are in front of the rooms, where you can get...More

    La Madrugada has a beautiful pool, ocean view and beach. But the management is rude, unhelpful and English speaking staff is a rarity. The manager, Juergen Roehm, walks around drinking beers and ordering food but is of no help when there is an issue. Half...More

    Great people, good food, lovely rooms, 2 pools, clean friendly and safe environment. Would happily visit again. Location on south of island, but not a problem as hotel organises many trips and days out.

    We had an amazing stay at La Madrugada! The hotel is located in the most southern part of the Island. It's the only hotel on this peaceful beach. You're really among the locals and won't come across the so-called 'beach boys'. The beach is well...More
