Directly on the shores of the ocean is a little magical oasis, built in the style of the local folklore. Everywhere only foliage, colorful shrubs and very clean throughout. Local conditions acceptable to enough food and soft drinks. Towels in the rooms are changed every day and so is the cleaning done. The only thing you can criticize this place...
