You must go into this hotel realizing it's rustic. The showers are outside, the rooms are pretty basic--mosquito nets over the bed, tin roofs, small rooms, twin-size beds. Once you accept what it is you are getting into, you will appreciate the wonderful things about it. The grounds are wonderful. The picture posted for the hotel (above) is the view from the restaurant. you can reach the beach in a minute. The restaurant (especially breakfast) is delicious. The staff (hippie tree hugger ex-pats) are very friendly and helpful. This hotel also runs a scuba store "downtown," which is very convenient. bring a flashlight, however, because you have to do a short, 5-10 minute walk through the woods to get to the hotel. it's safe, but can be a little unnerving in the dark!
