I travelled with my adult daughter and we loved this place. There were very few rooms occupied and the village was very quiet, with hardly any foreign visitors. We found our Spanish knowledge invaluable. The gardens surrounding the hotel are lovely and the jacuzzi and pool are in a beautiful setting. It was a pity the bar was closed during our stay and there was a very annoying cat which had attached itself to the hotel and noone could get rid of it. The free wireless internet in the room/suite was wonderful! The beach at Mismaloya is unimpressive and the vendors were a pest. We spent our time at La Boca (go by bus for 7 pesos), las Animas & Yelapa, all of which are lovely beaches & the last two are only accessible by boat.We ate at La Choza (My Tony) 3 out of 4 nights and it was the best food ever & the best value. Tony is a very interesting person & his son & nephew were great hosts. We tried Juan and Only on one occasion & were not impressed. The restaurant at the condos across the road was closed during renovation work, so options for eating nearby were very limited. Casa Iguana restaurant is excellent and super value, but was only open 9-5 unfortunately. The little supermarket beside reception met all our basic needs, including breakfast. We hiked up to Eden which is beautiful & has an interesting history, but most of our time was spent enjoying the beautiful quiet beaches. Mismaloya is famous for Los Arcos - the best thing about Mismaloya beach is the snorkelling and diving in that area. We watched the movies Predator and the Night of the Iguana when we got back, just to see the beautiful scenery all over again. It really is an idyllic place.
