From the moment we arrived until we drove away the hospitality of the employees and the owners was amazingly friendly and helpful. The food was very good whether it was the breakfast, tapas from the bar or dinner. The owners served breakfast and took the time to get to know all of the guests.

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 children, ages 5 and 7. We were immediately helped with our car and the service just got better from there.

The perfect place to enjoy life. Every aspect is geared to the comfort and enjoyment of the guests. The staff seems to take pleasure in pleasing their guests. The rooms are large, we'll maintained and very inviting. We enjoyed the common areas, where strangers gathered and friendships were made. The breakfast, wow, was outstanding.
