Nice place to stay. 2 minute walk to the beach. However there was a lot of construction around this area, so it was noisy in the mornings and throughout the day.

Staff is head over feet in customer Service. Stayed at Villa #5 and the roof shared a terrace on the upper level, it was noisy whenever someone was at the terrace, you could hear the talks and also when our neighbors access the room on the upper level, you could hear and feel them Walking to their room.
