Last year we spent hardly any time there, this year, every day after being on the beach we went there to have a drink and just to enjoy the nice atmosphere of the place....

We will be back for our 12th time in a few weeks after having spent a week here last November. Not much to say different than many others have said before. The beach is the best and no one is bugging you to buy something if you want to buy some local craft. As well, you can have a sit...

The principal asset of this hotel: the beach. Buildings are old and are in the process of being renovated. Entire sections were closed due to that. Personnel warmful and careful. I will certainly go back to this hotel next year.

“Due to renovations, we had to change room twice due to late arrival. . Scent of fresh paint was too strong in our room upon arrival. We had to go back to the reception to ask for another room. They gave us older rooms at the ground floor for the night and in the morning they gave us another room for which we paid, i.e. superior with ocean view. They did good to settle the problem with very professionalism. Personnel at the reception is polite and care for its guests.”
