First of all, let me say that the maids and night watch are delightfully friendly and trustworthy. The rooms are small and simple but have a comfy bed, mosquito net, a little desk and an area to hang clothes. The maid kept my room spotlessly clean. The good pretty much ends there. The communal bathrooms, while also clean, barely function. A small dribble of barely lukewarm water is all you get. The wifi doesn't reach to the rooms on the back of the property, meaning you have to take care of any emails/business in the lounge area (not fun at night when the insects are trying to suck you dry). The hotel claims to be "Eco" but does not offer beach towels even though the beach is right across the street, and does not offer a place to refill water bottles. The room price is relatively inexpensive for being so close to the beach, but what they don't charge in room rates, you end up paying by having to purchase breakfast (highly recommend Il Barino next door) and $15 yoga classes and bike rentals (other hotels offer free bikes to use). The yoga class I took was horrible, taught by an inexperienced teacher who didn't focus on alignment and led an embarrassingly awful "meditation". The yoga studio itself is kind of cool because its more or less outdoors. The class I took was packed full and there was no personal attention from the teacher. Even though the place overall is not that great, it's close proximity to the awesome restaurant at Ahau, the fun dancing at La Zebra, and the yummy coffee at Il Barino make it an OK base for a few days or a week near the beach. I would recommend this place to young people or yoga enthusiasts but if you are looking for real comfort or something more "romantic" this is definitely not the place. And bring your bugspray. You will get eaten alive in the communal shower as they are right next to a mangrove swamp and the Mosquitos hang out in the shower. One last thing, they process their own waste water, so at certain times of the day a horrible sewage stench wafts over the property. I would advise going to the beach in the afternoon to avoid this, especially if your room is near the back.
