I stayed here for 4 nights. It offers decent rooms with airco, an absolute must in Mal Pais. The breakfast is good enough but not special, don't try the restaurant for other purposes than breakfast though, there are plenty of other places nearby. It's hard to believe that this was once the centre of all Mal Pais action. It's location of course never changed, the beach and its waves are very close.
The staff is very friendly and arrange for surfing lessons if you want.
