Hotels in the same category, even in the same resort, can vary considerably in character, ambience, service and facilities and may not offer the same staffing levels and facilities, or be as well maintained. it must be bourne in mind that cost is a good indication of standards, particulary when comparing hotels in the same star rating.

The accommodations have a unique and inviting ambience that is comfortable and welcoming in a preserved family atmosphere. The different rooms alternate with iron and wood beds made by local craftsmen and the style changes from stricter minimalism to art deco.
