Villa Parguera came highly recommended by a friend who stayed there "all the time as a kid." After our stay, my husband and I concluded that her memories of the place are warmer than it actually is. Apparently, the hotel is celebrating its 40th year. I could see how this was a great spot 40, or even 20, years ago, but now, it's getting run down. The bathroom door was splintery and didn't close properly. The ceiling tiles in the bathroom fluctuated in the wind when the balcony door was open. Tiny, tiny ants roamed around the bathroom sink CONSTANTLY. There wasn't a washer on the faucet, so the water came out way too fast and sprayed everywhere. There was a hole were a light switch should have been. The couch was worn and way too soft. The lighting, even from the lamps, was stark. The curtain on the balcony door wouldn't open all the way, so the room was incredibly dark. And the fitted sheet didn't fit the bed; it kept coming up, exposing the mattress, by morning. There wasn't an iron or ironing board in the room; it's kept at the front desk. And they have the longest check-in/out layover ever: out by 11am and not in until 4pm. There's no beach access, but there is a pool, which only kids used.
My husband and I were in the area for a wedding, and a shuttle was scheduled to pick us up from Villa Parguera at 3:30pm and we needed to change our clothes, so the 4pm check in was a problem. We begged to check in early, and they graciously allowed us to do so after we waited for an hour, so I was grateful of that. Otherwise, the only other plus was the covered balcony, which was great to sit outside the room, even when it was raining, and watch the ocean and boats, read, etc.
I reminded myself many times that I was only paying $107/night. You get what you pay for, and for that price, I was happy to have somewhere to lay my head for the night and a lot for my car, so I could drive to other beaches and towns during the day. So, I can't say that I would recommend this hotel for the sport of staying here, but if you want a cheap place to sleep, go for it.
