    Nice place, horrible food

    This place has beautiful rooms right near the ocean with a nice breeze. Wonderful views from the room, with a hammock and chairs outside. The pool is big and it is nice. This is one of the only places on this beach with rooms so close and a nice breeze. The rooms are nice with air conditioning. The staff is nice. The only problem with this place is that we paid for half board before arriving and we were less than satisfied with the food. That is the only problem with this place. The menu never changed and the food was not good. The service was slow with the food and check, sometimes two hours total. The food tasted good but not fresh. We went down the beach to The Rock and had amazing meals that were fresh and tasted great. Stay here and eat (except breakfast) at The Rock.

    Pros: Location and rooms

    Cons: The food. Quicker service and fresh food with a menu change, not the same thing every day for lunch and dinner.

    Location: The Rock restaurant is great. Walking down the beach, swimming in the ocean and their great pool. Kitesurfing right out front.

    Nice hotel right on the beach. It is close to the shops and restaurants around. Staff is really nice. It has a quite atmosphere. Breakfast is OK. The only negative is the dirtiness of shower water but only stayed for couple of days so it wasnt a big problem. Personally did not like Paje as it is really touristic compared to other locations but the hotel is recommended if you are planning to stay in that location.
