“Be prepared for rustic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2008

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb. 2008. The cabanas from the outside look charming with thatched roofs and the grounds are well-kept with lush greenery and are located right off of the main beach. They are open-air cabanas, meaning there are no glass windows so there are many open air entry points throughout the cabanas - several points above the roof, flooring, windows, etc. Bugs didn't seem to be too much of a problem but we did run into the occasional spider during our stay and I woke up with several bug bites (mosquitos I am assuming). Bring bug spray!

Inside, the cabanas are pretty dark - if you open the shutters, the privacy factor is cut down considerably even though there is foliage growing around each cabana. Room are basic but seemed to be in pretty good shape. Plumbing and water supply are a little antiquated so don't expect a hard pressure shower while here.

Also, because the cabanas have no noise insulation from the outside world we were awoken several times each night to the sounds of roosters crowing (yes they do crow at 2:00am, not just at dawn) and many dogs barking. Our cabana was located on the side near a main "road" and again, were awakened to the sounds of 4-wheelers driving up and down the trail both nights. Luckily, I always bring along earplugs while traveling so that helped somewhat.

Roberto, one of the "innkeepers" for lack of a better word, was most helpful and greeted us as we got off the water taxi and carried my luggage from the beach to the cabanas. He was friendly and helpful thoughout our stay.

Good location and great price but again, just be prepared to go rustic if you stay here.
