When we checked in we had 3 separate rooms and each one smelled horrible of mildew. The air conditioning helped to vent some of it out but 2 of the 3 rooms never really cleared. The rooms are nicely appointed but one of the doors didn't lock and there were no safes in the rooms. We felt safe enough because its pretty isolated. They claim its 1 kilometer to the beach but I'm pretty sure it's closer to 1 mile+. Not very convenient for going to the beach easily and quickly. Beware, the beach is beautiful but it is a national park so you have to pay $6 to enter unless its after 4pm and if it is high tide, there is not much beach to be on. The owners and staff of Luz de Luna are very nice and friendly and the restaurant was fantastic. Lovely balconies on the second floor and a cute and fun pool. I would stay someplace else if I return though.
