We spent nearly two weeks here in March of this year and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Originally we were only supposed to stay for a week but I actually caught a parasite diving and was too ill to move. Dan very kindly extended our stay and was very helpful in getting me a doctor to treat me. Being ill is never nice when you are not at home but the fact I was in a nice hotel with a good bed and nice bathroom made a huge difference and made it bearable!
Dan and Kira are a great source of advice and help and look after guests well and keep the hotel immaculate. They make it their priority to help guests and make your trip run as smoothly as possible. By far they have been the best hosts so far on our travels! The staff are also very friendly and helpful and asked how I was doing every day when I was ill which was lovely!
On request Dan organised our trasfer from the airport which was great and we were collected by a lovely Amercian couple Steve and Marcia.
We stayed in one of the pool rooms. The rooms are a good size and are kept very clean with the beds changed every other day and towels replaced daily along with a thorough clean daily. They have cable tv and your own little fridge which is really helpfuland air conditioning which is essential. When we arrived Dan had very kindly put some beers in the fridge for us which was a really nice and welcome touch, especially as it had been a dry law in the days before as President Chavez had recently died.
The breakfast is wonderful and changes daily. It is sufficient to keep you going long after lunch!
The communal kitchen and lounge area is clean and well maintained with every cooking utensil you can imagine! I made a few good meals here and to be honest as it was the start of our travelling I didn't realise what an absolute luxury it was to have a clean and well equipped kitchen at my disposal! The internet works best up in this area and there is a nice breeze as you sit and relax in one of the hammocks.
The pool isn't huge but it is clean and a good respite from the sun although it could do with more loungers.
