"Was such a nice experience oh the view of the sea when waking up in the morning, sooo clean for the value you pay and take you for the breakfast "
"We loved the view from our balcony and room. Maybe a small gas barbeque will add to this amazing experience."

"We enjoyed our stay at Santos express. The best part was being right on the ocean and hearing the waves throughout the night. Compartments were clean but, obviously, very small.
