5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Excellent location, service, and room

great place. We had room 1 on the first floor, and it was wonderful. Comfortable bed, a balcony overlooking the street, compact but good bathroom with plenty of warm water. The location couldn't be better. Literally steps from the boardwalk to the beach and three minutes walking to old town. Juan Mari has created his own food map of the area (excellent) and is an unabashed fan of his city. Across the street is a grocery store which is really helpful. Nothing was more than a fifteen minute walk from the room, most everything was much closer.
