Stayed here for a week with my 2 teenage children. Very rural setting - a mile off road -with beautiful views. Breakfast only, buffet style continental taken on terrace. Excellent local bread and fresh orange juice. 8 rooms only. Very relaxed, simple and quiet -a stylish, rustic , laid back vibe with bright mexican fabrics and lots of hammocks for lounging. Donkeys on site for kids to ride. Like most of the guests, we went for the surfing - hotel is ten minutes drive from good surfing beach with several surf schools. Lots of other beaches within easy distance. Young owner Henrique ( a surfer) and his family are charming and speak excellent English. Off road setting up a hilly track can be a bit daunting in the dark driving back from dinner and not much choice of restaurants in immediate area. Some evenings we had a picnic - bought cheese and fruit in local village and ate it on our patio. Being on the Atlantic side, can be quite windy. Would certainly go again.
