We stayed 2 nights at Hotel Casa Barbara at the end of February. We had picked it because of the price, and it was great, and the staff were friendly. It's a short distance from the ferry (25 peso taxi), but could have been walked, if you're willing. This time of year is not when the whale sharks are around.... More

We did enjoy our weekend in this hotel. Very close to all restaurants on the Main Street. Room well cleaned, remember to keep the AC on to cool down and dehumidify the air. Nice swimming pool, the breakfast can be improved (only coffee and bread served, we decided to have breakfast outside).

Lovely grounds, nice people, great location. The rooms smelled excessively of cleanser and when that wore off, there was a strong musty smell. We actually stayed in 2 different rooms, same situation. A/C was minimally working, but luckily for us temps were cool. If you can afford to spend more, do it and stay elsewhere!
