    Excellent Value and wonderful vibe. This hotel is good for families, solo travels, older vacations and young couples. One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to is a very short walk away. Great food nearby too.

    We had a wonderful week at Sugar's Monkey. It's super relaxing with reliable WiFi and terrific air conditioning in the rooms. The owner Enrico is a terrific host. All four of us are non-surfers over 50 but we felt right at home. :-)
