I wanted to go away by myself for a few days of reflection. What a perfect place. I had a huge wooden room with two walls of open shutters. I awoke every morning to the wide view of the jungle. Almost felt as if I was outside. Super clean with lots of towels. They also put tea lights in there so the place was magical at night. Nice touch! The restaurant is good, and the service is excellent. The place has a great vibe -- very friendly with lots of travelers. Perfect for a solo get-away, but you don't feel isolated. Good surf school on premises. These folks have their act together. Oh, and Ice water available at all times.
