Beautiful hotel. You can walk over the beach to morro this takes around 1hour 40 minutes. There is also a shuttle that runs regularly, be warned the ride is very rough. There is always high tide so not a lot of beach but the hotel is directly at the ocean. I would recommend going to Salvador

This is a fantastic place to rest away from the crowd. The hotel has only 11 bungalows which means you do not even feel it's crowded. The rooms are very comfortable and adequate for the environment. The hotel restaurant is very good and the place around just paradise. I truly recommend this hotel!

We loved staying here and truly relaxed daily. The rooms are large as are the bathrooms and they are clean. We got the whirlpool (jacuzzi) but it was infested with mosquitoes and bugs so only used it once. The pool area is great. This hotel is on a beautiful stretch of pristine beach and ocean. It's like paradise. The breakfast... More

The cottages are simple but sparkling clean and a comfortable bed. The chef is excellent and puts out some fusion dishes that are both interesting and very tasty (try the Tilapia Ceviche laced with tropical fruits). Service can be a little spotty, but they're happy to help you if you seek them out.

It's a lovely hotel with fantastic surroundings. The beach is great (though when the tide is out its, it's miles to the sea), the pool is very small but nice to sit around, they do great cocktails and the central pool/bar area is lovely for a drink at night providing you bring a decent quantity of insect repellant (an absolute...
