This hotel is right on the beach, five minutes waik from town and is in good condition. The staff is nice and you can see that they work hard to improve the place even more. The hotel is a bit basic without TV and pool, but very charming. The problem is that we could hear everything that the neighbour did.... More

Lovely cabanas by the shore. Amazing ocean view from the rooms. A perfect romantic getaway. The greatest thing is that you step out of your door and into the sand. Even though it is nothing too fancy, I totally recommend it.

The beach beds are always available at Casa Iguana they're Blue and pretty comfortable. ( They are often invaded by the neighboring guests ) The Staff are very kind and willing to fulfill your requests immediately, free coconuts and wi-fi... More

We stayed here 8 days, price was very flexible since we stayed more than a week. We had the beachfront room. It costs 1200 pesos which is a lot because it is not a deluxe room, we had the room for 800 pesos and that price is quite fair for a hotel like that. It was very clean, every day.... More
