I liked location. I didn't like that there was no tea and coffee added every day in the room when run out. You have to go to the restaurant or bar just to have cup of tea.

This is a lovely hotel to relax in. My room was spacious, balcony was massive and private (I think all the rooms have balconies but some balconies are smaller and less private, my room no. was 816). Very clean and nicely decorated. It's so close to the beach that you can hear the waves from the room which is heaven and if that's not your thing the doors are soundproof. Best view I've had in a hotel (just the ocean). It's about 15 mins to the centro by bus, the hotel has a free shuttle service and the bus stop is just outside with a regular service. There is a black sand beach in front of the hotel, really pretty. The food was good, varied. Restaurant near it is worth a visit. If you are covid cautious, this place is for you. They take it very seriously (e.g. disinfected my suitcase on arrival, disinfected salt shakers when setting the table etc.) and it sets a good tone in the hotel e.g. ppl don't get in the same lift. They take your temp at check in and having masks, gloves and gel is mandatory (they made me buy gloves as I didn't have any). I felt very covid safe here. The only negative was that the service wasn't great. Only met 1-2 nice people on the front desk and otherwise, I found the staff to be a bit abrupt, questions about activities were met with responses about QR codes. Professional but not overly hospitable. There are steep gradients to the hotel and pool/beach! Overall my stay was super relaxing and I would certainly stay again.
