Very nice rooms, good quality amenities, a very good host (Matteo) that gives very useful advice to visitors. A very good restaurant right nearby (especially lobster and beef). The perfect place to start trips to Punta Herrera in the North and Xcalak to the South.

The room was beautiful and extremely clean. The view from the balcony was amazing. The breakfast was off the toast... More

We stayed four nights and had a great time here - very welcoming, comfortable and with good quality service. Lots of useful advice was provided by the friendly Italian owners about local activities and restaurants. A quiet and relaxing location and has lovely ocean view from the rooms. Very good value overall.
