We stayed here in March 2013, and had a great time. We stayed in the cheapest room - only $75! Our room was clean, the grounds natural and lovely. The pool was pristine and pretty warm (not quite the mid-80's I was hoping for, but I'm a warm water wimp).
We walked to a cool liquor store with fun novelties to bring home to my son. Also walking distance from a decent Mexican restaurant. It was nice not to have to drive.
Days after we got home, I had lost my keys. I called and the owner (the husband?) was super nice. He found them in the dresser drawer of our room and mailed them to me that same day. What he didn't know was that my dad had died not long before this trip; that extra act of kindness somehow meant all the more to me. Seems hotels never bother with such things when I leave something behind!
I agree with others here that the lady wasn't friendly, but her husband (?) made up for it. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat.
