Amazing hotel. Amazing location, private beach. Nice big rooms with comfortable bed. We didn’t have tv in the room which wasn’t a problem. Morning yoga and plenty of trips which can be arranged at the reception. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

It was a very relaxing stay. Waking up everyday to a beautiful breakfast and doing yoga at 9am was so rejuvenating. The location is very good and easy to walk to restaurants and entertainment. There’s a pharmacy right across the street if you forget anything. The parking lot is also across the street so you can safely park and start vacationing.

This is a boutique hotel, quaint and friendly. The staff is accommodating to your every need. The hotel is in walking distance of several amazing restaurants and shops. There is a great outdoor local bar right across the street with local food vendors and ice cream. I would recommend upgrading to an ocean view room if you can. Also visit the property’s other hotels, they are in walking distance and offer great food, pools, and views.
