Property is very tranquil, and away from the "crowd" without being far from the
"pueblo" which really isn't that big. Cabins are interspersed through a
wonderful "forrest" of plants -- though somehow you still feel and hear your
neighbors when they pass.
In the cabins, a ceiling fan and standing fan, which I appreciated and
especially the mosquito net. Basic rooms, which is not meant to be a negative,
but to manage expectations. There is hot water, good towels a desk, closet and
the fans. In front of the rooms are a hammock and swing chair. NO wifi in
rooms, but in the main house. There is hot water. Overall rooms quite nice,
basic in that you don't get the "extras" as you would in a large city: clock,
wifi, safe, etc...but very well appointed for a pueblo.
Main house are your beach towels and hammocks -- the stretch of beach in front
of the hotel is reserved for the hosteria guests -- a VERY nice perk, beach is
very clean, can hang your hammock and enjoy, especially the wonderful sunsets.
Also board games and such in the main room
Meals were very good and surprisingly very reasonable --- the prices of meals in
the "town" were the same while here at the hosteria, the food was better and
Meal service staff were very pleasant, sadly I felt as if the others I had
bothered to much -- didn't ant to hear from me!
Yes there are 5-6 huge dogs that's hang around the eating area. I am terrified
of dogs, and these were huge, but somehow since all they did was lay around, it
didn't bother me.
Overall amenities, the semi-private and quiet beach were wonderful! Nice get
away to relax but and easy walk into town if you wanted more activity.
Did think this was a little expensive (and not to include breakfast) but did enjoy the
