Very cozy hotel, family atmosphere, all in white, Mediterranean style, has eight rooms built on staggered levels all with sea views. Medium sized adult pool with jacuzzi and small swimming pool for More infants located on the third level with an unsurpassable view of the sea and the beach Due to its location, a kilometer from the entrance arch of Punta Sal, the hotel is located in a quiet and peaceful place,from its arrival the guest is greeted with a delicious Pisco Sour (typical peruvian cocktail), the rooms are comfortables and functional, the beach in front of the hotel (30 mts), is long and wide, ideal for long walks or just letting yourself go and relax, if you are looking for peace and tranquility, this is the ideal place to disconnect from everything and enjoy the peace and tranquility that offers this cozy lodging.
