We stayed in the beach house for 8 days. It wasn't actually that bad of a place to stay, nice location on the beach and the owners were friendly enough, however we were unfortunate to share the hostel with some very loud, obnoxious and inconsiderate young males who were on an extended stay. These people seemed to be completely obvious to the volume of their own voices and to the fact that the walls were very thin. Despite the fact they appeared to be in their 20's they all acted like they were about 14. They were up making noise at 3 am most nights and also left a huge mess in the kitchen everyday. There were signs from management saying if we had complained about these people they would have been kicked out without a warning, but we didn't want to be responsible for having these people kicked out, we would have preferred a warning been given - i don't think they were even aware of how annoying they were being.
While staying here we weren't to worried about the lack of cleanliness, figuring we got what we paid for, however after leaving we stayed at Maiana's guest house for the same price, and that was far, far cleaner not to mention quieter, and they gave us free fruit as well.
Don't stay here if you want a quiet vacation, it's more suited to noisy, inconsiderate teenagers who just want to party, or people who still act like noisy, inconsiderate teenagers.
