    Perfect location, close to the beach. Friendly staff, good meal menu, after ordering, meals are served in good time. Chefs cook fish brilliantly, rooms are very clean, neat and spacious. Generally, service is top notch.

    Very pleasant and large room, huge bathroom. Nice quiet courtyard that makes guests forget the city around them. Free and easy parking in the street in front of the hotel. Friendly staff. Not far from the beach and the airport.
