Superficially, this is a beautiful apartment/hotel complex. Rooms vary hugely; some are beautiful, some are more basic. All of them are a bit shabby. They all require renovation and a lot more care. The apartments are extremely dark.
The owners are very friendly and helpful (e.g., they want through great pains organising nicer rooms for us than we had originally booked). The main problem is that one has to ask for everything. For example, there were no glasses in one of the kitchens and no toothbrush glasses in the bathrooms. The wooden chairs had no pillows, and the lighting was so poor that it was difficult even to play cards. Some showers only worked sporadically. All of this was rectified when we asked, but in a hotel of this price class this should all happen automatically.
The location is directly at the beach, but it is a beach where one cannot swim due to rocks. The next beach where one can swim is about 10 minutes walk along a poorly maintained path or along the road.
Breakfast was ok (fruits, pico gallo, toast), though one of us did not like it, so we went to a nearby bakery. It would have been nice to have a bar.
The price would be ok if everything were in good condition, but as it is, the price is about 40% too high.
