I hate to be a naysayer after the two latest five star reviews but there are a few issues I believe could make this place so much better.
For starters, the kitchen we had was not "fully" equipped by my definition. The cookware was extremely limited and in poor condition. The stove apparently had a short in the oven and burned out an element the day of our arrival and a new one the next day. We gave up trying to explain this to the owners/manager. Management does not provide any paper towels, napkins, basic seasonings so bring your own. Overall housekeeping was spotty at best, the kitchen was only so so clean, I washed the dishes prior to using them which required either filling a large pot with hot water from the shower or heating it up on the stove. Be prepared, there is no heat in the cabins with kitchens and it is quite chilly in San Gerardo at times. The lighting in the bathroom is so poor it is almost impossible to see (I kept trying to turn the light on only to discover it was on). One covered picnic area on the grounds had old mattress stored in it, this is not a pretty sight. My overall biggest complaint is no one on the premises speaks English, if you have a problem or need to ask a question you better know how to speak some Spanish. These cabins are in a lovely setting they could be wonderful place to stay if they had some basic TLC and there was a way to communicate with management.
