I have nothing good to report about this place other than it's location. We were with a group and the day before we turned up they sold on five of our rooms to other punters who wanted to stay longer. Our room was dirty (lots of dead wildlife under the bed and in the corners) and smelt bad. An attractive...

Staff should be friendlier. Smiling does not kill. Rooms are not cleaned everyday, but quite good. Localization near the one of the best playas is important. We wanted to stay in Posada, but due to some mistakes in reservation we finally ended here. Poor breakfast. Shop is just across the street. Parking avaiable.

Nothing too special about this hotel. Rooms are spacious. Beds were firm with very hard sheets. The curtains didn't close all the way. The bathroom was spacious but old. And unfrotunately, they advertised hot water. We had none, so no shower for me. But our friends in the other room had scortching hot water. Dont know which is worse. I...

This hotel is certainly over-selling itself on its website. While it is indeed a good value (~$60/night) and does indeed have a pool and restaurant and A/C and parking lot, it's about as basic of a hotel as you can get. (It's the equivalent of a Red Roof Inn for a beach town). The free "breakfast" included coffee and toast,...

Very inexpensive for what you get: king size bed, air conditioner, ceiling fan, cable, refrigerator and hot water. The owner definitely knows how to make you feel comfortable. The food at the restaurant might not be as good as I expected, but that doesn't mean that it was bad.

The owners were delightfully helpful and the room was clean and spacious. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were taken care of and we stayed an extra few nights because we enjoyed it so much (and it was very affordable). The beach is an immaculate, white-sand beach with little islands dotting the distance. You can walk...
