We stayed 6 nights on our honeymoon here back in November 2012. We checked in our #8 beachfront villa, first of all I felt completely creeped out by the men building the yoga hut just steps away from our front door. They stopped working and stared the whole time while we were getting settled in and continued to do so throughout our stay. I also got sexually harassed by a man walking the beach while my husband was surfing...never felt so uncomfortable in my life. He was clearly "on the prowl" and left me alone (finally) when my 6'6 husband came back in. ....so gross! Other than that...this place was pretty decent. Great location, delicious food, friendly staff and we loved the pool. It was nice having a mini fridge in the room to keep our rum cold (there is a grocery and liquor store within walking distance). The beds however, could have been a little more comfortable and the only wifi we got was in the restaurant area. Overall we enjoyed our stay. WE LOVE MAL PAIS & SANTA TERESA!!! Rent an ATV while you are there and explore everything this little surf town has to offer. And be sure to take a surf lesson from Jobbie....he's the coolest dude you will meet there.
