We stayed for two nights in the annexe across the road; spacious rooms in a nice garden setting. The hotel itself is beautifully positioned on the beach . It is not a "luxury resort style hotel; instead a pleasant and personable atmosphere. Nice buffet breakfast in rooftop restaurant.

I agree with many reviewers on this hotel. In some ways it is kind of a dump and in other ways it is amazing. The amazing: Beach location with fun waves for the whole family to enjoy while you sit in a hammock sipping a drink. Good service by the staff who would get you a coffee or drink when... More

We recently planned to stay in "La Casa de Marita" for three night. However, after we stayed one night we decided to shorten our stay due to several reasons. The room, Mangle, was dark, small, and some parts were held together with duct tape, the bottles of water provided were expired and tasted very bad, the shower was temperamental so... More

When people give this place a good review they have the island in mind more than this specific hotel. I'm convinced their island experience is overshadowing the faults of this hotel. Not sure how to explain it, but this hotel has a very depressing feeling. The surroundings are very nice and great island. There are much better choices.

The rooms are large, clean and better equipped than most other choices. There is a nice restaurant on the... More

Great location, on the beach. We had a room over looking the ocean. Room was clean and roomy. It did need a little TLC. Other wise great. Good food and staff was very helpful. Also good food close by.

What a location!!! You walk out the front of the hotel to a beautiful beach where Iguanas are sunning themselves, lobos(Sea lions) playing and pelicans diving for fish in the rock pools.
