Our travel dates were 17 Nov - 1 Dec. Kirby, the Canadian manager, was an excellent host. He met us at the airport and took us back at the end of our stay. For the fee, this was the most cost-effective meathod and avoids the time-consuming milkrun bus meathod. He also took us to the Mega superstore so we could buy some groceries and refreshments for our room. Bungalows Marlenne is located at the north end of Guayabitos and perfectly situated for walking between La Penita and Guayabitos. It is quiet and the beaches far less busy than at the south end. Kirby drove us around the local area so we could orient ourselves to the place.
The room (110) was a little on the small side but had everything we needed, including a fantastice view of the ocean and surrounding area. Anything that we required was attended to promptly and Kirby and his staff are more than accomodating. There are two small stores located next to the bungalows that have all the essentials but shopping at the open market in La Penita on Thursdays cannot be missed. Fresh prawns can be purchased from the fishermen on the beach for 80-100 pesos per kilo with heads off! Also, you can eat and have your fish prepared by the staff on request. We bought Salsa and Guacamole for our room a few times and it was delicious!!
If you are looking for fancy five star, then stay at Stefanny Villas. If you are looking for a place that has everything you need for the budget minded, including a kitchenette, then this is the ticket. We will definately consider Bungalows Marlenne for our next trip.
