Our stay at Tia Maria was very pleasant. It had everything we needed and more. The rooms we brightly colored and cleaned daily. It was hot while we were there (high 80's) we stayed three nights, two nights we were fine with the windows open and the breeze felt good. The third night was after a 90 degree day and... More

Tia Maria's is a great place to stay if you want a quiet, clean room, close to the action. Emelda is a great host, and she provides a very welcoming atmosphere. The hotel has a great patio with hammocks, and a kitchen for cooking meals.

We stayed here for three nights. It was a great little place just two minutes walk from the main "gringo alley". You could get anywhere you needed in two minutes. The owner was very helpful with directions and places/things to do and see. Would recommend. Clean big bed, large room, hot and cold water, air con.

From initial arrival I was apprehensive. Once inside the front doors, we were immediately greeting with a warm welcome and a smile. The rooms were very clean and very reasonably priced. I have stayed at some of the higher end "resorts" in the area and none could compare to the cleanliness and kind service at Tia Maria. There is an... More

We stayed at Tia Maria Guesthouse for 4 nights in 2015. Unbelievable value and hospitality from Emelda. The Guesthouse is optimally located within walking distance from the bus station, restaurants, market, and other attractions. It is close enough to everything, but just far enough from the noise. The rooms are simple and very clean, with access to a shared full... More

The Tia Maria guesthouse was great! The location is perfect. A block and a half a way from the downtown area, so it's quiet, but still extremely close to everything. I traveled alone and felt very safe. The property is locked from 8pm - 8am. Emelda was so helpful with quickly answering questions for me before I arrived and was... More

The Tia Maria is a great place to stay. It has clean rooms with comfortable beds, TVs and hot water. Well worth the money. It is also in a great location with just a few minutes walk to the downtown. The owner Emelda also goes out of her way to help her guests. She even helped us book a hotel... More

I cannot speak highly enough about our stay at Tia Maria. I often wish I was still there. The big spacious rooms are sparkling clean with lots of counter space to spread out your stuff. The beds are wonderfully comfortable.There is a great balcony area and a kitchen, where you can cook if you like or socialize with the other... More

For approximately $50 US, you get a comfortable, clean and spacious room. Air conditioning it an extra charge. The owner is very friendly and check in was easy. Location is steps away from the downtown main streets. There is a nice balcony to have breakfast and coffee on. A fridge and kitchen area to prep food. Everything is simple but... More
