Sabine (November 2015)

Very clean. Directly on the beach where many fisher boats are. Shaded Chill out area in the back. Wifi works perfectly fine. They have a nice espresso as well. The lobby is good for hanging out.It is only a nice little walk on the beach past the fisher boats to the best bathing spot in the bay..Staff is very friendly, they organized us a driver for our next destination and arranged massages. Really good place to stay.
