The price was good, you get basically your own condo with a yard, your own kitchen, and a perfectly kept room. You could easily stay here for a week and never...

We really enjoyed our stay at El Arca. Noe was amazing, so helpful and informative. Great location, very close to La Ropa. Small pool and lovely flowers and aspect. We loved our open air kitchen and deck. Tina kept our room spotless and we will definitely return.
