Beginning with room, property itself, location and staff - everything was excellent. Maybe only tip - on the photos it looks a little bit bigger than it actually is ;-) Also, beware that it's focused mainly on kite-surfing so you might feel strange if you are the only one not doing it, but I would still come if only for...

Thanks for your lovely review. yes, Certain times of year are very kitesurfing orientated which is because of the wind seasons. The beach is totally quiet when there is no wind. Nevertheless we are happy you enjoyed the super relaxed atmosphere.

Thank you very much for your positive review and good advise. We are sorry the restaurant manager was grumpy - not very Christmas spirited! Usually he is very charming and helpful maybe the tensions was high because it was very busy! It was very nice to meet your family and friends and hope you have a wonderful 2017.

Nice hotel. Tribal room is amazing. Great breakfast and room cleaned every day. Didn´t like, a lot of people outside the hotel taking the beds in the beach. Due to the restaurante and the kite school being independent from the hotel, lot os people took the place and the beds. It´s unaceptable that people from outside the hotel, not ever...

Hi - Many thanks for your positive review and helpful comments. The security team also complained of outsiders using the facilities and not cooperating. Something we are strongly working on. You are absolutely right. Thank you.
