Stayed for a week and LOVED it. Staff is great, and friendly, and pretty helpful. There's a restaurant/bar on site with free breakfast and a really nice ambiance. The casita (bungalow) is great--there's a little kitchen and sitting room, and it's a great place to eat lunch and hang out in the afternoon (esp. when the afternoon thunderstorms hit).
Low season is very quiet here. Noise was not a problem at all.
Internet IS NOT free, although it's really cheap (1 dollar for each use). Ditto for the safe in the room. They did tend not to tell you that sort of thing and wait until the end to *surprise!* charge you for a bunch of extras. But it's not much money, and def. not worth arguing about.
Most of the staff is bilingual, and the rest is very patient with broken Spanish.
Would love to go back again!
