    The owner and staff were amazing. We came at the beginning of a rain storm and the owner went out of his way to buy us umbrellas. They also do laundry for a fair fee, wifi available, clean pool, short walking distance for a number of restaurants. The restaurant at the hotel is also amazing and one if the best in the area. Highly recommend eating a meal or two there. 110 plugs, tv in spanish, frig, and a/c in the room. Filtered water available for guests.
