I had a pleasant weekend stay here. The manager, his family and staff were friendly and made me feel welcome. The pool and landscape were nice. The room is basic, no hair dryer or alarm clock. The beds are so comfortable just like home. An easy and short walk to the beach. I will be back.

While John and Neto were very nice and attentive, I found this hotel overpriced. First and foremost, I had never been to a place with a kitchenette where one has to rent a kitchen kit for $40.
