The owner was really nice and helpful. Maheata is in a great location right on the beach with free kayaks available for exploring the lagoon and amazing snorkeling in the coral reef right off of the beach. The room was very spacious with a kitchenette for making your own meals. Maheata also has free wifi and a ping pong table.
