Nice hotel and clean room, staff very friendly. Perfect beach location but not for children. We went all inclusive but also tried some of the local bars for food and drinks, very cheap. Remember this is a very poor country.

The entire team strives to ensure superior customer satisfaction to all of our clients surrounded ...More by everything from classic three-star elegance to modern-chic comfort. We have 97 rooms in total (81 standard and 16 apartments) that are set within our beautiful gardens. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, fitted with cable TV, mini fridges, telephones and laptop size safes. Take a walk down our very own sunset boulevard, where a variety of tropical plants and flowers will lead you past the rooms and on to our newly renovated and spacious sunset restaurant and lounge overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with breathtaking sunsets. Sipping on a cocktail tiptoeing in tanning pool or hanging over the infinity pool daydreaming away, this is More Than You Bargained for!
