I loved the vibe of this place! It's chilled, and at the same time, good for party. It's just in front of the beach, you have the most amazing views from the window of your room! They also provide surfing lessons, and the staff is great.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come again, especially to watch the surfing which is great fun. But just for a weekend getaway it is a perfect place. Could definitely do with more parking though.
