All day breakfast. Food good.
Right next to the kitesurfing beach.
An owner that does not care about her guests - the place is a cash cow
The beds are disgusting. Despite clean sheets, the mattresses are filthy and very thin. The beds are cheap rubbish and they are VERY uncomfortable.
Bugs. The cottages are infested with some kind of burrowing worm and they frequently fall onto the beds and your stuff (if they fall on you in the night they bite). The product of there burrowing (faecal matter?) also is a constant problem. There are gaps in the roof so cockroaches, mosquitos and one very large (4 inches across) spider get in. The mosquito nets are not up to the task. We burned coils each night to fend them off.
Expense. The owner arranges for her driver to pick you up from the airport. Then it turns out you get hit with a 850 Peso bill (that you were not told about).
Filth. The walls and bathroom and anywhere not obvious are filthy. Cleaning is done only on a superficial basis (ie a sweep out of sand / change of towels and sheets).
Noise. There is a workshop next door that provides constant banging. Late night partying too (though it was Xmas). Lots of caged cockerills to wake you up early in the morning.
This place, despite being low end was not worth the money. It was not relaxing and the owner (Katherin?) has not put any money back into the business to improve the conditions. Overall, this was an uncomfortable two weeks.
