Parts of the hotel were under construction when we arrived - they were building a new restaurant - and we were the only ones staying there the first night, however our room was perfect. With airco to save us from the heat (this was not perfectly positioned-it was right over the bed which got us sick), with the best beds we had throughout our journey through Panama, and a huge beautifully designed bathroom to come back to after a long day of surfing or scubadiving. Because of the construction the reception is hard to find, but while we were walking towards our presumed rooms we were welcomed by the spanish speaking host.We could use their well-kept bicycles during our stay and these were definitely useful to explore the area and travel for breakfast and dinner. In the room there was a book filled with very handy tips and info -especially for restaurants for dinner.
