When I first contacted Rusty Pelican there were no rooms available, there was only room outside, which are containers. At first, I was wondering if I should book them because they are containers. The fact that they are made of metal could heat the room making the night sleeping unbearable. The truth is that I was fortunate to reserve it and spend 12 nights in them. I slept comfortably and even had to use blanket. I was traveling with a friend and each of us was in a container, which are suites with a great bathroom. Furthermore, between the two containers (parallel), there is a full kitchen and a great space as a living room overlooking the garden and pool.
With regard to staff, Corinna and her daughter are always ready to help and make your stay enjoyable. We also had the good fortune to be invited to a tuna barbecue prepared for them.
Finally, I would strongly recommend Rusty Pelican. And if you are in doubt about the containers, do not waste your time thinking. Book them. Excellent value for your money.
