    Poor 2.0
    We liked Palomino and the beach-but this hotel was a very bad choice. It is very expensive but the whole place is just worth half of its price. The pools are nice. But they should start to change a lot. The rooms are simple-which is never what we expect when we hear boutique hotel...rust in the bathroom, holes beside the window, stains on the blankets, etc...the breakfast is simply hilarious- they offer you a little bit - which has never been enough for all the people sitting there. This was the most expensive hotel on our trip - but we couldn't find a reason why they take so much...

    Volgende keer beter...
    Tegenvaller ondanks positieve comments online, Water was niet aangesloten, electriciteit valde regelmatig uit en er waren dieren uitwerpselen op onze kamer. Wij hebben het hotel vroegtijdig verlaten. Enige positieve was het uizicht op de zee en de bediening bleef vriendelijk.

    Schöne Anlage am Meer
    Schöne, ruhige und großzügige Anlage direkt am Meer. Man läuft ca 10-15min am Strand entlang nach Palomino. Es gibt 2 Pools und diverse Sitzgelegenheiten. Die Betten waren sehr bequem. Die Belegschaft war sehr nett. Wenn man abseits des Trubels von Palomino unterkommen möchte, dann ist man hier genau richtig.

    Tolle Entspannung am Strand!
    Der Aufenthalt war wunderbar. Das Hotel scheint noch im Aufbau zu sein. Gemütliche Ecken mit bspw Hängematten fehlen. Die Zimmer sind geräumig und sehr sauber! Alles in allem echt super! Vielen Dank!

    Muy bueno
    al baño le falta mucho aseo, mejor acondicionamiento. En general la habitación muy cómoda, y el lugar muy bonito. Le falta restaurante para obtener todo en un mismo sitio. Euclides y Edith se esmeraron por hacer lo mejor en atención.
