The staff are very helpful and fun, and the room are simple and clean, this is a simple hotel do not expect anything luxury / facilities. But still, is good enough to chill and relax, I would suggest for group of young friends that travel with budget. We had breakfast and lunch there sometimes, very good tapas and good portion...

Karma kayak is nestled right on the beach and gives lots of lovely seating options. Only issue is that the food just doesn't seem fresh. Most of our food was cold and seemed as though it'd been sitting around for some time. Would not really recommend.

We stayed here for more than ten days and it was the right choice. The hotel is a little bit away from the "center" and party area of the island but that's perfect. You get into the center within 15-20 min walk or faster by bike or horsecar. The beach is really nice there and there is a great place...

I wish we had been able to stay forever! The staff were so kind and accomodating, and clearly love their jobs and their patrons. The rooms were clean and light, with a big verandah and day bed. With a private beach, plenty of beanbags and sun lounges, this was the perfect spot away from the crowds to relax and enjoy...

We liked the location of this resort on the north side of the island. It is quiet and a great place to watch the sunset. I would recommend renting bikes (something that I think a lot of other hotels provide for free). The actual hotel was just okay. The breakfast was probably one of the worst I've had. All three...

We had a tapas dinner and the food was very good. Six tapas between two of us was just right, and great banana pancakes! The tables are set out on the beach and we had a perfect view of the sunset behind a distant mountain. And you can dip your toes in the sea between courses. Very tranquil! The staff...

Best place we found for food and sunset watching. We were pleasantly surprised by the service of one young lad by the name of Are ( I hope I spelled his name correctly, sorry if I didn't Are) he was very friendly and commented that he liked his job very much. I can see why. This place was lovely. Great...
