“Not Ok, save your money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

We were not expecting something special but this was a big disappointment even for 40 $! If you have a wonderful beautiful view to the ocean why don't you build balconies that can be used to sit on? And why do you build a kitchen and ugly wall to block the view and instead gives you a dusty road to look upon when you have breakfast or just want to sit and read?. The staff didn't speak a word of English which made it difficult. Maybe our Spanish was not good but you expect that people working in tourist business know how to understand simple things like "broken lamp" or "is there internet available?". The place gave bad vibes from the beginning and nothing changed it. We moved to Betos the next day (read about it in different review)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

I stayed here for 4 nights. I made a reservation online for a single room with hot water and aircon - but to my disappointment, there were no rooms available when I showed up. I had to stay for one night in a room without hot water not real windows (next to where the family lives). That's ok but I had to bargain with the owner, who wanted me to pay the regular price for it!

There was another weird moment when I asked if I could get breakfast at 7am and the lady basically screamt at me, saying this is only possible if you leave for a tour organised by the hostal (usual time is 8am). Then she told me I could use the kitchen only to prepare a 'quick meal'.

That's why in the end I felt somewhat disappointed - although the location is excellent and the view from the upper rooms absolutely stunning.
