I have been coming here for the winter months for the last 5 years. The climate is wonderful and the people are friendly and welcoming. There are some wonderful beaches not too far from here if you don't like the local beaches with the dark sand. Places to eat are plentiful, catering for all tastes. Fusion restaurant serves excellent food and is open 7 days a week. Rossini's is excellent, situated just up the road from the Dorada Beach hotel. Palm Garden is one of my favourite places to eat situated about 1mile away in Patalavaca the next village.
