          Hello, the beach is a 1.5 km, and if you want to go walking it is 15 to 20 minutes or in car is a 5 minutes.

          Hi. ¡Qué lindo es su hotel! Tengo una pregunta. Is there any chance we could stay there as a family of 6? My husband and I have four children (ages 14,13,11 and 9) If not, is there a hotel you could recommend that would be able to accommodate us? If so, how do I note this on my reservations? Gracias.

          We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.
