We stayed here one night and then escaped. The room wasn't dirty but it smelled old and dusty and the floor, walls, and ceiling had discoloration that made it look gross. We felt stranded when we got there. No restaurants or shops nearby ($15 cab ride in to town). The beach was a bit of a disappointment too. It felt dirty and the swimming area is pretty much dominated by the surfers. The view from the room is awesome. The hotel looks good in the online pictures, but I wouldn't recommend it.
