This place would be fine if the price was $40 USD per night. We paid $120 and had a rock hard bed, no hot water, and the toilet would not flush at all. The air conditioner did not work as well, the attic has no insulation so you can hear everything in all the rooms. When we tried to get...

We stayed there in early February after the change in management. The hotel is small and clean and the staff are very helpful, but it seems to be missing a few key pieces that you would expect for the price. The sheets and towels were threadbare, and the bed had no mattress pad. It was one of the hardest mattresses...

Sorted out bathroom problems quickly and politely . Laundry was done overnight and inexpensive. Breakfast was basic although ham and eggs were excellent . Hot spring pools were...

Don't let go by the bad reviews, it's really a nice place to stay. Minor, the manager is an excellent person that really tries his bed to make everyone feel like home, the Peruvian chef is amazing and the food couldn't be better... Has a great location, close to everything but yet not at all noisy, plus has the beautiful...

Small, 11 attached rooms, one floor and all rooms facing the nicely kept tropical garden, owned by a local and managed by a very friendly and ready to serve staff. Included a tasty typical breakfast (not much variety), a hot spring and cooling pools. The rooms were not luxurious but comfortable and had everything we needed. The grounds are very...

On the Plus side: Friendly host, tasty breakfast, convenient location, good AC On the OK side: Room was freshly repainted and in an overall good state. So, although I do not recommend this place, I cannot say that it was run down. Host tried to promote local businesses (hot springs and restaurant) on which he has a kickback. Your might...

This 11 unit motel on extensive large landscaped grounds offers suberb value for the price. The rooms are basic, clean, and the facility managed by very friendly and helpful staff. There is a lovely pool suitable for children and cooling off; and a wonderful hotsprings pool included in the price--why pay $300 next door or $40 for a day pass...
