We booked a room here for a few nights off this gorgeous beach. We arrived in the early afternoon and checked in. The owner is a man of few words, a little hard to get info from and not very friendly. We needed to get some laundry done that day and he and his wife had it all folded and ready for us that evening. I did loose a couple of garments, which could happen even at the laundromat. We had a wonderful dinner that day at a restaurant called "Surf Mi", owned by a couple boys from Colorado that can cook! After dinner upon returning to the hotel, we found alive cockroaches but luckily all our stuff was still zipped. We also realized that the "Sofa bed" listed for our room was in fact a flat ratty futon and we had to pull out and it took up most of the kitchen/living room space and blocked the glass mall-like front doors. I just couldn't bare it anymore so we got our 3 small kids 5 and under and relocated using the only taxi we could find in town at about 11 pm. We relocated to Rancho Coral which was very nice and worth the extra fro a clean floor for my 1 year old to walk around on. We were charged the full amount for the night stay at La Doce Vita. I was sincerely trying to stay there but way too many things didn't seem to work. I could see this working as a crash pad for surfers but I wouldn't take the love of my life here or any families. I'd rather see dead cockroaches than living ones!
