I stayed in January 2013. There were good points and less good points. I think for someone passing through, it's reasonable value for money, three blocks from the beach, with live music on Friday nights. The bed was very comfortable. The room had a fridge. The wifi works in the bar, at least sometimes. Breakfast is simple, as they say on their website: fruit, toast, cereal, a plain omlette. Although the screens are not properly fitted on the windows, with visible gaps, there were no almost mosquitos in my room.The mother and daughters who run the place are pleasant people.
Staying a longer period for work would be more of a challenge. No one in reception when I checked in, and I saw only the guard that evening. There is no explanation of how to use the phone, how people could contact me, etc. The numbers on the website are to cell phones, it seems, not to reception (which is unstaffed anyway). There is no room safe. About 90% of the floor space in my room was taken by furniture with rather hard, sharp corners, which made getting around it (to put the mosquito net down for instance) a challenge. The desk was in a corner with very little room for the chair. The TV and phone seemed to have a totem value -- they were present, but not available. Had to wear earplugs when the air conditioner was on, and since there was no ceiling fan in my room and the only windows were in the bathroom and hall, that was all the time.
I can imagine staying here again (I would bring some clear packing tape to seal the screens), but not my first choice.
