The hotel is owned and managed by two Spaniards, Jorge and Alex, always present, attentive and amiable. Beatiful scenery, lovely beach, real paradise. Great pool. Hotel is located 30 minutes from the centre, but there is free transportation to/from several times a day. Excellent service, good selection and quality of food/drinks. Nice air-conditioning in rooms, very rare bugs. Prices are... More

We first thought it is a bit far from the centre, but that is actually a positive since you have a paradise beach for yourself and you can enjoy a very peaceful environment and raw nature! Fantastic hotel with free shuttle to the centre, great service. Rooms are actually huge private bungalows, not the best finishing, but very elegant. Great... More

The hotel is great in terms of service and infrastructure. Great pool, bar service, etc. Rooms are big, clean enough and hard to see bugs inside of it. The restaurant is very good for lunch or dinner with many great options all of them well prepared. The breakfast though could have had more options (e.g. yogurt, more fruit options) and... More

I was so excited about this place because I've heard amazing things about it; the virgin beaches, the raw nature and so on...Well, the village is really raw (let me start with that), except the center of the village where you actually have a few stores and some mini bars, and then when you pass that to get to the...

The pictures on the website don't do it justice. The grounds are spectacular. The layout of the bungalows makes you feel very much a part of nature. At night we saw fireflies and listened to the various insects and during the day we heard different birds singing and bright colorful crabs burrowing in the ground. The staff was amazing. All...

I have been on room number 1 and I had an spectacular view of the beach. Despite of the blowflies, bees and gnats in the restaurant and room the place is good. The hotel is very far from 2nd beach, where most of night life, bars and restaurants are, but the transportation was very well organized on pre defined times.... More

While staying in Morro, a friend and I stopped for dinner here. Such a beautiful property with an incredible restaurant. I would definitely stay here in returning to Morro. Amazing customer service, beach front property, private cabanas... Couldn't ask for more!

If you have the crazy idea to go to this fashion island, exclude this hotel from the places where to stay. The hotel is very bad managed, the recepyionist "Giovanna" is particularlry unpolite.
