The place is off the main strip, about 8 minutes' walk from Manta Dive, away from the noise and hassle (maybe 400 meters?). That's the good thing. The bad thing is that when it's pouring rain, all the dirt streets get a bit flooded so sometimes you must be careful where you step (if you're not using a bike hehe).
I loved the place. It's still new, very simple, and well managed. There was no TV in our room but we didn't need one. A safe would have been nice. Nights get hot but we didn't encounter mosquito problems (nets would be a nice add on as well)/ Only three people were taking care of it during our stay (plus the cook) so be a bit patient if you need something or need a pick up. One night it was really pouring rain so it was impossible to get out of our place but we managed to order pizza by phone and one staff kindly fetched them for us. Really thankful for that. It it ever happens to you, ask for the pizzeria, it was surprisingly good!
Price fair, paid about 30 euros per night.
PS: sometimes some water problems but just let them know and they'll help
