The hotel is not in Pedasi, it is about 30 minutes drive south right at a beautiful beach, playa venao. No banks, not shops, no atm, no gas, only one expensive mini mini market and a few hotels and hostals. It is basically a surfers beach, good waves, pittoresque environment.
The hotel has excellent rooms, with fan, ac, tv and great showers, from standard to suites, all nicely located and with their own porch. Large inifinity pool with beds, chairs, umberellas and a pool bar which was not open when we visited.
Hotel has a half open air restaurant, small menu, just one kind of red and white wine. Food was good, not great. Breakfast was good too, choice of cereals, eggs, fruits and yoghurt, all made to order.
Downside is the staff, good and helpful at check in, but exept for one guy, Herman and a Dutch girl they really did not understand what it is to work in a restaurant. Not a word of English, and even in Spanish things got complicated. If you finished your dinner, they take everying away, even your half full glass of wine. This is my advise, train your staff and this is truly a 5 star hotel.
One other minor point, some rooms, even the suites, have a door to the next room, makesit too noisy, you hear everything from your neigbours. Should not happen at $ 200+ a night.
