              Very good boutique hotel with amazing service & price but if you are looking a ocean swim place better to look somewhere else because that part of beach is very hard for ocean swim

              Overpriced ”

              Some areas of the hotel were under renovation thus could not be used (e.g restaurant). It's overpriced compared to options in the same area. Good home made food but expensive as well. Zulu (5* next door) has similar prices for food. Beach is not the best, quiet though.
