We loved the Blue Marlin
Such a clean place and very reasonable. The food at the restaurant was so delicious! The beach was beautiful! But what made our stay so great, was the staff. They were so friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We really really loved staying here

Right on the beach which was great, but very few loungers that could not accomodate the large number of guests. People would put thier belongings down at 7am to make sure they had a lounger. Rooms very large and quiet but are starting to be old. Could do with some renovations. Staff very friendly, but was asked for money twice by one waitress at breakfast times. Not a great way to start the relaxing day. We booked a seaview room with a balcony and upon check in were given a room with no balcony and that had a square inch view of the ocean. Evetually we were moved to what we had booked. Perhaps, a partial seaview room option for some of the rooms, would be more honest of the hotel. Great place to kitesurf.

Nice hotel with nice staff
Very nice place with great staff and amazing food! Only inconvenience: All sun beds get reserved every morning by kite surfers who hardly use them but block them for everyone else for the whole day. We didn't get a sun bed even once during our whole stay! Also swimming is not great because of all the kite surfers.
