Very nice location, very nice grounds and everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful.
The food at the restaurant was good but the options and choices were very few and and portions were very small which didn't help. Through the open door I caught sight of the cook not being the "strictest" in his preparation of breakfast. Of course most of his "infringements" most likely common in many kitchens, just not observed by any of us. The beer we were served always had at least one bottle of each order with an expired date, this semi admitted by one of the servers. Must have had a lot of old beer.
Rooms were comfortable and clean. Rustic but with all the amenities. Had free WiFi but no real signal in our room, had to go to the restaurant/pool area to pick up the signal.
Even though we had the low season prices, we did find it pricey. However, being fair, it was well within the range of what other places at that beach were charging. Very very inconvenient to have to pay for your room cash or money transfer, they do have credit card machines for "other" charges, but room is paid in cash only!! Very inconvenient since it is pricey place and one does not feel that safe carrying and traveling with so much cash!! This is an absurd practice.!!
The beach is not a swimming beach at all, plenty of surfing though. Great beach to walk long distances. around 2 miles long. Great for sunning as well.
Plenty of small eating places near by with great food and normal size servings. A mini super market across the street with the basics plus beer and liquor.
