a Couple in their 30's, without kids, from CANADA. Budget but not backpack budget....
We've stayed here 2 years in a row. Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, nothing fancy, but jungle like walkways and atmosphere, in ground pool, tropical decoration, cool circular stair case going up to the floors.
The price is right 40-60$/room (palapas). Hot water, Celling Fan, a little towel animal on your bed... you can bring you coffee mugs from the restaurant to your room! 2 streets from the beach.. pretty quiet, the weekend the music from around the area, bars etc...can get a little noisy, but not too hectic....dogs barking, drunks drunkin' and that rooster in the morning (i mean 3 am in the morning) .. though I think they ate it, cause the 2nd year, there was no more rooster.
Also, you can go on the roof, its a bit sketchy but what a cool view...we would go there for our morning coffee or our last drink of the evening..a couple cats hang about...with geckos in their mouths... we have yet to see the famous Tucan !!?? I don't think there are any!
All and all, a very COOL place in the heart of the tropics!
Staff speak english very well, and the girls at the restaurant are very helpful and friendly.
Just walk outside, go up the street to the next street (15th)? on the corner (1.3 seconds away) , there's a great little taco el pastor place...they're like 50 cents each!
For more upscale but FANTASTIC, down to 5th just before the main drag:
RESTAURANT CARBONCITOS !!! ( we ate there like 6 times in 2 weeks...tried everything!)
SOPA AZTECA !!!!!! DROOOOLLLLL!
