    Impeccable service, outstanding food, beautiful location. I would caution though that it is not a great beach for children. This location is perfect for teens, seasoned swimmers and surfers. We had a wide range of kids ranging from 7-15.

    Bathroom is perfectly normal. The restroom is separate and has a door. There is a bathtub and a rain shower. There are sliders in between the bedroom and bathroom which you can close of course.
