2/10 Poor

The rooms and restroom were disgusting. We didn't get the breakfast included innthe reservation. The stuff didn't use a mask.

2/10 Poor

It was close to the beach, but the maintenance and cleanliness of the place was a disaster especially our room. Fill of bugs, smelly, the bed was like wet, no tv, the bathroom was downstairs and I do not imagine how a drunk person will use the stairs to go up and down from the room to the bathroom. Now the customer service was awesome, the gave me back my money with no problem at all.

The property is very Zen, peaceful and away from the noise. located directly on the beach! However, the inside of my room was not well maintained.

10/10 Exceptional

Pasamos un fin de semana muy agradable, justo hace un año, en el 2019. La cabaña para tres personas estuvo confortable, y con vista al mar desde el balcón, aunque estaba en planta baja. La arquitectura es rústica para los amantes como yo de la naturaleza. El personal estuvo bien atento y amigable. El plus del viaje fue que se escuchaba bien de cerca el sonido de las olas del mar. Fue una experiencia relajante a la hora de dormir. Totalmente regresaria a pasar un largo fin de semana otra vez.

10/10 Exceptional

I had casa #5 which was a stand alone unit with 3 beds, working AC and shower/bathroom downstairs. Properties are really well maintained. Walk to the heart of town is about a 10 min walk or less. Access is through a road that is the paved so can feel a bit dodgy if haven't been exposed to this sort of thing. The beach is ok but majority of the people hang out about a 8 min walk down the beach towards the center. Overall for the price it is a great deal. PS no English spoken here to have your translator handy
