Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The rooms were clean and large with a sizable spa bath. Exiting the complex, the ocean was clearly visible down the road, and the shops a short walk away down this road and then along a side street. On top of that, the staff were friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
