    This is a budget hotel. the rooms were dirty even when we requested maid service. All rooms are in little buildings and if it rains you are stuck in your roo. Or getting soaked in the rain. We would never return to the establishment again.More

    During our recent stay, we enjoyed the "chill-out" guitar music which accompanied the daily 10.00 am stretching session on the beach, but our language skills weren't adequate to find out from the animacion staff where or what CD it came from. It was just a single electric guitar softly playing sentimental and gentle rock standards like "Feelings", "Stairway to Heaven", "Perfect Love" and "Hotel California". We'd be really happy if any other guests know and could share where this music came from. Thanks :-}
