Great place to stay near the beach
The place is very close to the beach and town but on a qùiet road. The kitchen was large with plenty of space to work. The staff is very helpful.

Fun in the Sun
The staff took amazing care of me. They were friendly, knowledgeable and spoke several languages (English, Spanish +). The property allows for both private, quite spaces and communal areas. Very close to the beach and great value.

I liked the music the staff played after 6:00. It was old school rock and roll. Gave the atmosphere a good vibe instead of the usual tech drumming.

Shower and bathroom options very limited. They have garden that is a good thing. Staff is helpful. Also it is very close to the beach. They lock the gate and give you a key to unlock so it feels safer. More bathroom and shower facilities would be really great
