Pros: Monkeys and other wildlife are abundant on the property grounds. Bungalows are built up on the hills and have a nice fresh breeze going through them. The porch on the bungalow has rocking chairs and a hammock, great place to relax and watch the waves of the ocean through the palm trees. Hotel is located a 10 minute walk from town, so no noise from the bars and parties. The pool was clean and had a view of the ocean, however the waterfall was not working...
Cons: Beds are extremely uncomfortable; I would wake up at 5:30am every morning just because I could not lay on that mattress any longer! No hand towels or other amenities are provided except for a normal towel and a small bar of soap. Lighting in the bungalow is very dim. When I read the description, I imagined the bungalows actually on the beach, but they are set across the road from the beach, up the hill, it is about a 2 minute walk. WiFi signal only reaches the reception area and they turn it off at night; so if you need internet access anytime between 8pm to 8am, you are out of luck! They do not have coffee pots, or any other food/drink items available at all; so if you want coffee or a bottle of water it is 10 minute walk into town. The grounds were in need of cleaning, lots of leaves piled around and the grass was dry and dead.
Overall: I enjoyed my stay and would probably return!
