Reviewed November 28, 2006

We stayed at Villas Ecotucan with two children aged 4 and 8. For $50 a night one really shouldn't expect much, but the website led us to believe that there was a pool (this turned out to be an empty, weedy pit), a restaurant (we were told meals had to be ordered 24 hours in advance and were served cold cereal as our "special of the day" breakfast), and a sitting area (this was piled high with dusty equipment and furniture). The lake is a short hike downhill - it is lovely and there are kayaks and plenty of lifejackets available. Ecotucan is solar powered.

Our palapa was not dirty, but it wasn't exactly clean either. There were none of the advertised "decorations" and, while we had clean sheets, the blankets were mismatched and smelly, with a variety of holes that looked as though they were the work of rodents. Netting was strung the whole length of the ceiling - its general spottiness (due to reptile/mammal excrement of one type or another) and its gaping holes in some places (what fell out of the ceiling and through it?) should have been a clue as to the noises that would entertain us that night. For most of the night, rustling, slithering and squeaks indicated that we were not alone.

Villas Ecotucan is located in a beautiful setting and the owner (Arturo) is very, very nice. He went out of his way to bring out games for the children and was very kind to all of us. Perhaps the conditions mentioned above were due to our visit occuring during the "off" season? Overall, we would recommend Villas Ecotucan for people who are not interested in fancy accomodations and are looking for an inexpensive place near the lake. But don't trust the website .... buyer beware!
