          We had a nice two night stay at Rabfer. Super clean rooms and a nice pool area. The location was nice and quiet but still close to the main plaza. Friendly staff and a very welcoming atmosphere! Would definately stay again.

          Good room, A/C, safe, pool, wifi, with great shower. Friendly helpful staff. 5 minute walk to town centre for bars/restaurants etc. Cheap taxis. Local laundry, cheap with a three hour turnaround and a free delivery to the hotel. Visit the Ecocentro Danaus, 10 mins away.
