The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the pool and hammocks were inviting and the owner, Igor was exceptionally hospitable and went out of his way to make our stay perfect in every way. Plus, his cheese and mushroom pizza is amazing!! We definitely want... More

I ended up taking 3 classes and by the end of the last class I was surfing. What a joy! If you are going to... More
