    Food was great and portions were huge. Bathroom smelled musky no matter how many times the ladies tried to clean it.

    I liked the convenience of the restaurant on site. We didn't like that the room was moist and stuffy. Our towels smelled bad.

    We got a double room and had a bed that barely fit one person. No mirror in the bathroom, had an electric water heated shower that was being held by a metal chain.

    Convenient beach access!

    The rooms are adequate size and very clean, with small fridge included in every room. All of the property is well landscaped and clean. The air conditioner is awesome for a break from the heat! Breakfast is included with room rate. It's delicious and you can eat all you want; choosing from eggs, plantains, rice/beans, and a variety of fruit. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant/bar is open for all 3 meals. And there's a large pool for a refreshing dip or daily exercise. And, most importantly, the beach, 'Playa Chaman', is a short walk away.
