We originally booked a room with a king size bed, however, there was a problem with the booking and half of our stay was in a very small room with only one double bed. The staff at the beach is great and this is the place to stay if you want the old town feel.

We love staying in this part of town. For a week we can ignore wheels and just walk to the beach, the markets, galleries, Rio Cuale, Malekon etc. Our happiest moments are when we almost always find a dining table for two, right alongside the public walkway along the beach, so there's the beach, the ocean, the pelicans, frigate birds...
