Every thing in the place is perfect, the location, the beach side, the clean rooms, friendly people which makes you love the place even more, if you're looking for a simple vacation with enjoyment of every second you just need to go there ,it's also close to the markets and night life in general. Price is also pretty good. I... More

This felt more like home than a hotel! Everyone working here whether owners or staff are so helpful and make you feel so welcome! It is very clean and the food is very nice! The location is perfect next to everything and right on the beach. I would come here again in a heartbeat (already planning for that)!
