We enjoyed the stay and the service was excellent. However, we would prefer that there were less trees in the property as they blocked access to see the ocean. The breakfast menu all was too limited and not satisfactory. Overall it is very convenient and excellently located.

Rooms were neat and prepared for us. Breakfast was excellent and served on time. I noticed that guests are valued, staff welcomed us with warmth. I liked seeing the owner taking notice of the guests, greeting each of us with love.

The staff were sooo friendly. I got a call as I landed which was very welcoming. When I arrived the environment was very accommodating and I definitely felt like staying longer. When in P.E there's only one place I'd like to stay. La Mer
