10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic hotel right across from the beach
This is a fantastic hotel that was just "easy" to stay in and enjoy. Nothing was hiding, far away, or difficult to get to. Parking was simple, the pool (which we loved) was easy to access with plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and space. The attendant at the bar was always there to provide clean towels or a drink, and the green grass and plants added to a beautiful aesthetic. We had just previously stayed in two 5-star hotels and were very impressed (we got a room here the night before arriving) with the room, which was the most basic on they had. It was large, airy, big bathroom and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were professionally polite and helpful. Also, there is an amazing beach right across the street with warm water that you can easily walk to! We will definitely stay here again - its just a clean, easy, and happy place to be.

Un buen hotel familiar

Muy bien.

8/10 Very Good

Apenas tenho que registar duas questões: 1- O tipo de torneira do chuveiro é muito esquisito. Nunca vi tal sistema e já conheço dezenas de hotéis em varias partes do mundo. 2 - O resguardo da agua do chuveiro está ultrapassado (cortina), pois seria conveniente substituir por porta(s) em acrílico ou material semelhante. Quanto ao resto nada a assinalar tendo em consideração que é um 4 ****.
