Agree with what everyone has said before - this is a beautiful place to unplug and enjoy a relaxing beach vacation. Gorgeous property on one of the nicest beaches in Mexico. One caveat - get the best room you possibly can. Our first 'Ocean View' room had no ocean view whatsoever, was right next to the bar and pool, and had an unpleasant smell. Late night negotiations went nowhere, but we went in the next day and were moved to a true Ocean View room - our own beautiful little cottage actually. Same room category and price! We saw other people doing the same thing next day - don't stick with the first room you get if you aren't happy. Definitely stay close to the ocean - it makes an incredible difference in your experience here even though it's a small place.
