Highly recommend
This place looks better in real than in pictures. The rooms are like in a hotel and they are cleaned daily. The outdoor patio is great and for all the guests to use. To get to you room you need to use the stairs, there is not an elevator in the building. I think this place was an excellent value for money.

Excelente experiencia. Todo limpio, desayuno exquisito. Gente demasiado amable. Está habilitada una parte detrás de la casa como hotel y quedamos sorprendidos, maravillosa y espectacular. Sara y sus hijos siempre muy pendientes de nosotros, nos dieron muchos datos, de corazón lo recomiendo al máximo!
