We recently returned from a week's stay at this house (over US Thanksgiving week) and it was (and my wife agrees) the best family vacation we've ever had. Sun, sand, sea and cervezas in abundance!
There were 8 of us -- 4 adults and 4 children (ages 4-7) -- and the house and its amenities made for a delightful stay. Bob and Bonnie (the owners) are the most laid back of hosts and made the "vibe" truly relaxing.
The house is extremely kid-friendly. The jungle-like scene had our kids running naked and hanging from palm trees like monkeys (!). They had a blast. It's quiet, peaceful and serene.
We mostly cooked in but had excellent meals at Casa Banana (literally across the street), La Zebra (literally next door) and in town at Don Cafeto's (go here for authentic Mexican food).
Be mindful that if the breeze drops there's a good chance of mosquitoes. There are nets for each bed but you can also easily find mosquito coils at the Super Francisco grocery store in town. Don't let the little buggers get to you tho' :)
If I could rate this place super-excellent I would :)
