Casa Sun & Moon and it is with the "&" sign - I have pictures of the hotel and it's name
Room 23 – Master Suite – “Sunset” – ocean front room.
This room has a king bed and a double bed. There is two night stands, television, a place for hanging clothes, and a bathroom within the suite. The bathroom consists of a shower, toilet and sink. Take note, when facing the taps in the shower, turn on the left tap and leave it running for quite some time in order to get the possibility of warm water. Do not look for water pressure around 6:00 AM.
The kitchen is located outside the suite. There is a fridge, gas “stove”, sink, dishes, counter, and table and chairs. There is a jacuzzi tub located outside the suite too however it does lack privacy if there are others using the deck on this floor but it was quite quiet. The dish soap is powder and does leave a residue however you are within walking distance to stores and you have the option to purchase whatever you need. A coffee pot and blender are provided. Be warned, one must wash dishes prior to use.
You will need to bring your own coffee and it was basket coffee maker so you will have to provide the filters too. No coffee, tea, sugar, creamer, etc. are provided so you must come totally prepared.
A huge bottle of water with a pump is provided for drinking water when you check into your room. They place it outside on the counter however we moved it inside the room to help keep the sun off it and keep it more at “room temperature”.
I found the bathroom floor in a dire need of scrubbing however it may just be “stained” and just looked dirty now after all these years as it does appear to be well worn. The bathroom is equipped with a small sampler of shampoo and two bars of hand soap. Staff do clean and do a good job everyday.
There is an air conditioning unit mounted at ceiling height along with a fan however both are quite noisy. We did keep both on low so that helped. There are no screens on the doors or windows therefore we did keep the windows and patio doors locked for “security” purposes when we were not in the room/area. There is no telephone or alarm clock in the room so bring your own.
Access to the beach is right there so that is very convenient. The hotel is quiet. A couple of restaurants are located across the street at their other property on the second floor. Make sure to have all kinds of denominations of pesos available as they did not have change when we were there. There are many other places to eat within walking distance.
There is Wi-Fi available on the bottom floor and there is a seating area however I was able to pick up Wi-Fi on the second floor with no problems in the outside seating area closer to the outside seating area.
There is a pool but with the beach and places to explore, we did not use the pool. Bring your own beach towels. We enjoyed the view from the deck overlooking the bay and surrounding areas. The staff is excellent and very helpful. We would definitely stay there again.
There are taxis always outside on the street. Make sure to always ask if they have change otherwise you may be out of luck getting change back.
There is a Scotia Bank available downtown along with other banks but being from Canada, this bank worked the best for us. You can withdraw up to $3000 pesos per day and are charged $24 (plus change) pesos for the transaction however that did great for us. We then went to the teller to break it down further as the machine was big pesos bills (500 and 200). If you wish to exchange US or Canadian currency, you must produce your passport.
I would recommend to have some knowledge of the language but the people were very patient with us so that was awesome and we got by however if we return, Spanish is on the list of to do things.
There is laundry business available about five minutes from the hotel. If you drop it off early in the morning, you may have it that afternoon or for sure the next day. They wash, dry, and fold the laundry.
The best advice I can provide is you are in their country, treat these wonderful people with respect.
