I'm not too sure I can add much more to the 5 star reviews. All I can say is that they are correct. The family that actively runs this place is incredible. As soon as I walked in, they made me feel so welcomed and special. You cannot fake this genuine kind of warmth day after day either, and there are too many reviews on tripadvisor that confirm they are the real thing. The beds are super comfortable, I had 4 pillows!, the shower is fantastic, great AC if you need it, a very safe environment, easy to meet other travelers (Keith, Marilyn and other staff facilitate this), great breakfast and a FANTASTIC salad bar. Also, they organized a birding guide for me who was very knowledgeable (he doesn't speak English but that was great for me - got to hammer him with my bad Spanish). And if you want to learn to surf, this is apparently the place to do it. I really, really did not want to leave this piece of heaven. I will certainly go back.
