I have stayed here in one of their basic efficiency apartments for many, many years. It is a short walk downhill to the beach and a slightly longer walk back up the hill to get back but taxi's are not expensive if you find that little climb a bit tiring.
Each apartment has comfortable, clean beds, ceiling fans (two apts offer air conditioners) stove and fridge and table and chairs in the livingroom/kitchen area. The pool is really well maintained and the grounds well kept. Owners and one staff member live on site so there is always someone available should you need something.
Most of the people from Canada that stay at Villa Linda are repeat guests and love the feeling of being with family that one gets by staying here.
This is a wonderful place for those that don't need all the frills and for those that are not into the all inclusive vacation experience.
If you are looking for a long stay winter vacation this is perfect for you. If you want beach, nightlife etc. these things are just a short distance away.
I consider Villa Linda my home away from home.
Friend them on facebook to see some lovely pictures.
