As most other people say, Casa Rosada definitely is the great place to stay in Livingston. The bungalows are small but comfortable with good mosquito nets, the garden is beautiful with lots of interesting details, the staff reserved but helpful. And the best thing about this place is the amazing way it is run: the management trusts the guests to be honest, honorable people, and the place is managed based on that confidence. You order your drink or food and write it down on the notebook yourself to pay upon check out. We liked it so much here that we kept on extending our stay.
In being simple but stylish, relaxed but not untidy, I think Casa Rosada is one of the best lodgings of this kind in the world. And the price is right! I hope it stays this way forever!
