We were there a couple months ago. We loved the location, the beach, weather, the travel to get there is also quiet an adventure, once there you feel the beach is only for you. They offer what you can see on their website, but the photos are kinda old or maybe they haven't had much efforts to keep the place looking good, so the walls are loosing their colors, furniture looks old, place is not that clean, the bungalow bathroom had some minor issues, but you can't complain as the price is not that high. One thing to note, I woke in the middle of the night and there was no electric power, also there was no water in the bathroom. Turns out they run on a gasoline power plant and turn it off at night. They should let you know that when you do the check-in. Reception girl and the rest of the people that work there are pretty nice, but you see them leaving at 8.00 pm. After that the only one in charge of running the place is the barman. We're not sure if he also leaves after closing the bar. I definitely would stay again and recommend this to a friend, but I'll let him know all these little details. It's a great place to chill out and relax, it's like having your own little island on the Pacific!
