Chema's is a great resort to relax by the sea. Infinity pool, nice deck chairs on their little private beach, lovely bar (a few varieties of international beer needed) and well maintained grounds. The staff are friendly and helpful - although they do have a problem understanding some particular requests when speaking English. I was annoyed that the booking site states free WiFi and breakfast included - False advertising! Also, I had to defrost the bar fridge myself on arrival as the freezer was totally iced up. My room had a worn out TV (it kept on 'flashing' dark patches every 3 seconds). If the owners could fix the small problems, I will be back.
