All of the rooms in the hotel have a spectacular view of the Caribbean Sea with private balcony, and rooms equipped with fully stocked mini bars and 24 hour room service.When you’re not pampering yourselves in your rooms, you will have a world of options available to you with a calendar full of a variety of lectures, workshops and even special mixers like the Texas tango mixer and speed tango mixer, ending with drawings for a free milonga pass to Portland Valen Tango and Burning Tango.
With more than ten top instructors and three popular tango music DJ’s lined-up, this years event promises to be an unforgettable affair! This years artists include an international roster with artists hailing from Argentina, Mexico, Canada and the US.
