Nice little place to get away and very affordable. Rooms were adequate, clean and comfortable in a rustic sort of way. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. The food was incredibly delicious and we would go back there again. Nice access to beach.

This place overlooks surfers point and is super cute. Food was very good and pretty decent pricing. The servers also spoke a little english which also helped in making it a little more enjoyable!

We stayed at Mama Ines for three nights. We got a pretty good offer, as we were there in low season (and there was only one other room occupied). The room was nice and spacious, however, not very clean. Unfortunately, the matresses were very uncomfortable...More

We were there just for a dinner - and it was the right decision. Wide range of choice, splendid view (really wow) and very soothing atmosphere.
