    Wish I could stay longer

    Nice luxurious apartment, recommend for travellers with a group of 4 or more who wants to a place near the beach (3 mins walk and great sunset from the beach), very good quality utilities, and fully equipped (washing and drying machines, oven, etc)

    Excelente lugar.

    Un lugar excelente, pero no es hotel, es como un condominio, no hay restaurante en el complejo, pero en la zona hay muchos restaurantes , eso si el lugar está completamente equipado, no falta nada.
