    Walking distance to the beach. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Our room was very clean and had a nice little balcony. The view was awesome. There is a small pool with an automated mini-mart. Had a great time.

    Magical place, stayed 2 nights. Everything is within walking distance. Nice view from the hotel room, plenty places to eat & shop. Very clean small town. The only problem was the “hotel laundry” - dryer was broken.
