We have been staying at this hotel for several times: the location is great (quiet), staff is most friendly, the hotel is comfortable with nice swimmingpool and restaurant and it has an unique historical 'background' (small village where fishermen and their families lived who fished for the albacora tuna fish). The old, school, chapel and houses have been restored with good sense of cultural value. There is one thing you should know: because of the tide and the salt lakes, you frequently sense an intense smell of... mud. It can be so intense that you can not open your windows at that time.
