I stayed one night at the Yandup Lodge in a cabana over the water. The cabana was very spacious and cool with lots of breezes from the ocean. The room was clean with hot showers, electricity and clean linens. The huge balcony had beautiful views of the ocean and the nearby islands. There was no TV or airconditioning, but these were not needed because it is cool at night and it so peaceful and beautiful and relaxing to read or lounge in the balcony or the beach.
The staff was very nice and professional. The food was okay, but defintiely not bad. Meals were sufficient. The owner was also a very friendly nice older man and interesting to talk to.
I enjoyed visiting the indigenous village in Playon Chico island. The snorkeling on the beach at Yandup was also good. I would recommend this hotel and stay there again. The people are very pleasant and provide good service.
