For some reason this property has gotten little notice in this forum and I got very little feedback to my inquiries about it , as such we visited it based on website alone. I am glad we did!
The location is perfect, just to the left of the MAl Pais/St. Teresa crossroad, the property is set-up well with several lovely cabanas and three basic rooms with bath, just beautiful well maintained grounds and most importantly the staff is fantastic.
As it is green season we pretty much had the run of the house. Antonio was our host most of our stay and he is top notch! He helped us arrange activities, gave surf lessons to the boys, as well as, hung out had a beer or two and just chatted with us.
Must impressive of all was telling us he would cook for us if we caught anything on our fishing trip. When we came back with 20 lb. of Yellow Tail and Mahi Mahi he took off to the store on his bike, picked up fresh ingredients and prepared us a meal second to none! Sushi, sashimi(sp) and grilled garlic tuna, and baked Mahi, tomatoes and onions with fresh mashed potatoes and salad!!! What a treat!
Everything we needed was close by, including Playa Carmen, a short walk away. The restaurant located right on the beach is also quite good!
As we left Antonio let me know that if we had any problems or questions on the rest of our 12 days to give him a call and he would take care of anything we needed. Somehow I gotta believe he would have, as he took care of everything we needed up to that point!
The rest of the staff was pleasant, we just spent more time with Antonio, as he was working when we were hanging out.
As a side note, we spent 4 days here and then 1 1/2 in Montezuma before heading east. Though we really enjoyed the falls, my choice would be Mal Pais any day.
I strongly recommend this property. If anyone can tell me how to get listed in the hotel section I would appreciate it as this should be listed among the others!
