Very good service, specially from the lady in the restaurant. Fantastic place to stay, the only thing that make us not to go back are the beach. But if you prefer the pool this place is just top note ! The cleaning-ladies does a marvellous job, everything is spotting clean, and they deserve a lot of tip !!

It is a simple, yet very well kept hotel. It's clean and flawless. It has a nice pool, and the beach is literally 10 seconds away from the pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Some "imperfections" in knowledge and politeness are noticed, but nothing too bothersome. The rooms are OK, of the typical vacation type, but at the...
