This place is very quirky. There is basically nothing else for miles and miles it literally is in the middle of nowhere. If your used to life's little luxuries this isn't for you. But if your after something different and rustic and not exactly perfect with friendly no-nonsense locals and amazing surrounds you may just appreciate this place.
The beer is cold and they also do a mean prickly pear margarita and you'll need it on a hot day.
We walked across to the camping ground and watched the sunset and the colours on the mountains. It was spectacular.
The food is basic snd probably a bit exy for what it is but you have to appreciate where it is. The rooms are very basic to say the least.
The place is often booked out with only 2 staff to clean the rooms and turn them over so you might have to wait for your room. We just enjoyed another margarita!
The rooms are clean tidy and comfortable though.
