“Lovely hotel & ocean view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2013

The staff are friendly and lived in the United States for a while so they speak English. Other guests are generally professionals who are working in the town so it's fairly quiet, although you can hear the street noise from the Panamericanan highway out front. I got the one room at the bottom of the U that could kind of see the ocean. It is perhaps the first screen door I have seen in all my world travels. There is wired internet in the rooms and the family even got me an extra long cable so I could work from the breakfast patio overlooking the ocean. Wifi does not work so well. Hammocks are clean and new looking. Incorrectly listed for price in most guidebooks ($32/night) and does not accept credit cards although there's an ATM down the street. Good hot water that is always available and all meals are available for additional cost. There's currently construction going on that will continue for the next 5-6 months that blocks the otherwise direct access to the beach and ocean. A short detour of about 100 meters gets around the construction.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

This place is right on the beach in Zorritos. Unfortunately the rooms don't face it but the breakfast area does. The rooms are nice, breakfast is good and the staff are really great!

However I chose this place because it advertised in room internet, which it no longer has. Curiously, we did get it working for an hour or so one day using a LAN cable but that was it. I missed some important Skype calls because of this.
