Good location, near the beach, supermarket and restaurants. Nice and helpful staff. Cozy house, 2 floors, with a good area and a balcony where you may have lunch, dinner or even a party. Small but beautiful swimming pool. Price/quality great. :)

The owner is awesome and we had a great time. He is very professional and yet gives a warm, home-like reception and welcome. The facilities are tasteful and the place is magic... I highly recommend it. I went on a surf trip with my Brazilian friends.

Very friendly owners and staff. Enjoyed drinks and snacks at the pool bar. Our two bedroom unit was large and well decorated with lots of local hardwoods. Easy walk to beach, restaurant and bars. Loved the pet parrot that to visit each day.

This is more of a public thank you, than a review. Christian and Rossella, thank you for your hospitality.

Can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. Christian was such a great host and made us feel like family during our stay. The rooms are priced perfectly, completely reasonable considering your getting A/C and cable TV and a kitchenette. Not only that, but you are given access to anything you need whether it be in a vacant room... More

Rossella and Christian, both from Italy, own Principe del Pacifico. They are warm and genuine. My friends and I stayed in the "Green" room. I felt right at home there. We were greeted by Mia, the lab, and by Silvio, the parrot! I recommend staying here if you want a home away from home.
