Conveniently located in a complex of private residences the one story multi-unit building features a spacious open-terrace perfect for taking your morning coffee or simply sitting in enjoyment of the nice climate. Wifi, of course, is included.
There are many close by establishments for guests to stock the fridge, do some shopping, and buy souvenirs. However, if your intention is to visit all the historic sites or the beaches, although close, some means of transportation is needed. If you are up for an adventure our public transportation system is very informal but can get you almost anywhere if you have time and patience. But if I were you, I would rent a car or rent a tour guide.
