10/10 Exceptional

The location was perfect. Safe and by the beach. My only complaint is the second restaurant remained closed during my entire stay and the Versatil restaurant went to a buffet only for the last 4 days of my stay. I would have preferred to order from the menu.

This facility is out of date, and at a distant from restaurants, stores and bars. You need a car to go around the tourist spots.

Cheguei antes do horário do check-in. Como o quarto já estava disponível, liberaram logo para eu poder descansar e ainda liberaram o café da manhã também. Foram muito gentis, voltaria mais vezes.
