This is a small 3 room inn that is a comfortable place to stay in Barra, and hosts both gringos and Mexicanos. It is near enough to the center of everything (meaning a short walk) but away enough to be quiet. There were 2 beds, a dining table, and a functional kitchenette with a refrigerator that has a freezer big... More

Great place to stay. Only two blocks from the ocean. Very nice rooms. Owner is very friendly. Free use of the computer. Lots of good restaurants to walk to. Price of the room very good. $70.00 a night. Very quiet. Has A.C. and over 100 channels on the tv. and a very nice pool.

We stayed at the Bungalows Marvida in Janruary 2011 and thought that we got reasonable value for our vacation dollar. What we got for $50 a night was a nice CLEAN,safe poolside bungalow complete with a queen bed and a double. The bungalow had a fridge,stove,TV, cofee maker and a microwave oven. Although we primarily ate out, it was nice... More

One of those places where same people go back year after year. Nice, friendly US lady owner. Free use of computer with hi spd.Two cheerful young women keep the place clean and tidy; very deserving of gratuity at end of stay. We were there for a week and enjoyed the large room with its two sleeping areas, kitchen, dining area,... More

We stayed in Barra de Navidad for three nights in February 2009 using it as a base for sightseeing in the area. We were surprised at how over-run the little town is with sunseekers and winter escapees from North America. As we were not there for the sun and sea, it was hard to understand why this town in so...

These bungalows are a cheap options and they are great for anyone who isn't looking for luxury frills. The rooms were cleaned comprehensively every day and had good storage. The hot water was a bit unpredictable though and the shower wasn't great. Thewas a full kitchenette in the room but we didn't use it so can't vouch for it's effectiveness... More

The rooms were cheap ($55 US/night) and we took 3 out of the 5. There was one other lovely couple there from BC and everyone... More
