We stayed in April 2009 and rented a studio. With $75 a night (incl tax), here is what you get:
- A large double room with king size bed (as well as a safe), tv and AC
- Bathroom with shower
- Fully equipped kitchen with large fridge/freezer, microwave, cutlery etc
- Huge living area with sofa bed that could have easily accommodated 2 more people
- Large balcony (2nd floor) with unobstructed ocean views. You will definitely enjoy taking your breakfast there or having a quite drink at dusk/evening.
The rooms were very clean and well looked after. Overall this studio must have been easily 60-70 square meters. On our first day we thought that we had no hot water too, but the staff simply explained that sometimes you have to let it run for a bit longer than usual, to get the hot water. So we left it running for 3-4 mins and it worked. After that we didn't really need to let it run for longer than a few seconds. The only "problems" I can think of were that: a) the water pressure was a bit low and, b) the A/C was a bit noisy. These were both rather insignificant problems though.
The hotel is right in front of the beach. What we liked even more was that many of the tourists were locals with their families and, hence, the hotel has a nice atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, although some of them might not speak English (I guess there will always be someone English-speaking around to help anyway).
The main square is not more than a 10-min walk away, so very easily accessible. If you don't want to walk you can take a taxi for a dollar or so.
Overall, this hotel was great and excellent value for money, and we'd definitely stay there again if we were going back.
