I been in this place for two nights with my family and we have a very good time. The location is great and rrhe room is nice. There was beautiful garden, but for my opinion the restaurant is the best part of the place, with really nice workers, good food and amazing view to the sunset. Have fun!

Rooms are really bad The website says it's a pet friendly place but it's not. Rooms are stinky. The restaurant is good though. You can get a vast variety of food at reasonable prices. The sea food is awesome as well as the breakfast options.
