I didn't know what to expect, but Hotel El Velero offers a great place on the beach, and friendly service. We came a day early, and they had a room open. Due to my husband using a cane, the next day they were able to change the gound level room closer to the dining area and less steps. The staff are all very friendly, and make all feel welcome. The food is pretty good, especialy the bbq nights, they had a fixed menu with large portions and fair prices.
The rooms are fairly large, we had 2 double beds, a small bathroom and in room safe. The bathrooms do need a overhaul, there is mold, but it is doable (being on the beach. ). The hotel room is clean, and a good value for the money. If you area expecting the hilton, go there. What I do like, is the friendly service, the fact that you can wear shorts to dinner with flip flops, and it's location on the beach.
The balony upstairs had chairs and tons of books left by others. Also, a big plus is the wifi, it works great! We met a few people who are return customers, so simplicity does say something!
