I stumbled upon this hotel a few years ago and thought it was a great value. (used to be Bugambilias) The new owners Verneen and Alfredo are amazing! She is Canadian and he is from Maz. The rooms are upgraded and clean, the staff is very friendly and the other guests are mostly repeat visitors who stay for months at a time. Many rooms have kitchens (fully equipped and if there is something missing Vern and Alfredo will lend from their own suite!) and all have tv. Once a week there is a potluck BBQ for any interested guests. The atmosphere is so warm and friendly that it feels like I am visiting family! In the past, I have travelled with a friend but this time had no problems alone. Spent time on the patio with other guests playing cards, drinking coffee and reading. There is a collection of books and games that are there for everyone. There is also a rooftop patio open to all guests. If you can, request the rooftop bungalow with a thatched roof! The hotel is not quite on the beach as there is a house in between but you can see the beach and the ocean from the roof. If you need a blanket, chair or umbrella for the beach just ask! Alfredo will probably volunteer to carry it down for you. Be advised though, that the bar across the street Gus Y Gus plays live music every night from 8-1. It gets a bit loud if you are an early to bed type but just turn on the airconditioner or bring ear plugs and it's all good! Even better, go across and enjoy some american style rock and roll and giant lethal margaritas! Drop by Mr. Coco's, the restaurant downstairs (not run by Vern and Alfredo) and try the huevos moltulenos for breakfast. Say hi to the parrot that whistles to all the ladies going by!
