If you are looking for affordable accommodations with an ocean view, you cannot beat this place. The average age of occupancy is usually 55+ with several suites occupied from 1 to 5 months by returning guests every year. We stayed one month from Feb 24 - Mar 24 and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
The suites are older, with the very basics for cooking, very large in size, but not so big on comfort. Each of the 12 suites have similar furniture, but ours had no back cushions on couch or chairs, so if i were returning I would take a few with me. I would also pack your most favorite knife for cutting (one supplied in suite couldn't cut anything). Maids come in once a week only. Kitchen has 2 burner gas stove top, coffee pot, microwave and toaster oven which all worked well for basic cooking in suite
As is usual in mexico, tiny ants inhabit the kitchen. I bought vinegar at the grocery store and wiped down the counter tops daily which seemed to control them. The balconies are spacious but furniture again are all plastic with no cushions. Beach loungers are old and breaking, but this winters guests are hopeful that they will get replaced for next year. The private beach area was lovely with palapas for shade.
The walk to town was about 4 blocks which we walked daily for suppers. There are some very good restaurants in town at very good prices. David Lau's, Al Chimichuri's, Spagettino's to name a few.
If you're looking for night life you'd best look elsewhere. For those looking for a quiet relaxing holiday on a white sand beach that offers plenty of swimming and snorkeling opportunities - this is a good choice. We would return.
