I consider this hotel "a diamond in the rough" but one only a 1/2 carat diamond. It is located on a nice complex that felt secure and quiet especially at night. There was a bar and restaurant on site. The Great Chef Nacho!!!! Cocktails two for one!!!! Breakfast specials daily!!!! Swimming pool available and clean. Maid service daily. The room came with three beds, a toilet and shower area separated, refrigerator, and kitchen area with kettle and hot plate. The WiFi worked really well in the room. My stay was 5 days and I could have stayed longer because I became really attached to the environment. The beach here so beautiful and community very friendly. I didn't like the fact there was no address so it was difficult to arrive at the hotel. Because the name is not Santa Teresa Bungalows (as advertised on Booking.com) most locals(i.e.taxi drivers) don't know where it is. It is best to call ahead to get good directions and keep in mind reception closes at 1730(5:30pm).
