Rooms were a bit tired but adequate. Lovely pool and nice breakfast included. The property is on a side road off the main street, located very close to the national park entrance. Our room included a kitchenette, which we did not expect. The nearby beach is beautiful for sunsets. Walking distance to many restaurant options but the hills will give you a workout and public buses are an option to get into town. We thought this property was going to be on or nearer the beach since we upgraded from the Cabinas Espadilla, but that sister property is actually closer to the beach. Tip for visiting the reserve - arrive as early as possible and you don't need a guide. We hiked the park alone and made first tracks on the beach. It was magical, and as we hiked out all the crowds and groups were entering. Glad we missed that.
