Great hotel, just 5 mins from main square and beach, nice accommodation in lush gardens, recommended. Breakfast just pastries and coffee but will do more if asked, although we had breakfast out. Rooms kept clean daily with towels. Nice pool if you want it, personally I like the beach.

This small hotel offered everything we needed. While not right on the beach, it was very close. The employees were kind and helpful, and their English was quite good. The small pool was very pretty and inviting. The grounds had nice plantings, and the room was clean and comfortable.
