The room had a fully equipped kitchen and an awesome view from the balcony of the room. The beach is just 100m from this place. Kids enjoyed the pool a lot despite it was very cool. Also the staff was very friendly. The tennis and volleyball courts were in very good condition.

Does your lodge accept a small dog, my dog is clean, quiet,?
Can you get a mini fridge for the standard room? How much extra is breakfast daily?
Not sure about the mini fridge, but the breakfast was mid range (10 - 15 US). We went down the street to a cafe and ate one day and it was a little cheaper and just as good....
