Liked: Very nice private rooms, very clean. Relaxing atmosphere, helpful staff.

Disliked: It's close to the beach, but there's really nothing else around there. It's a 30 min walk to La Paloma.

Beach / sunbathing

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff. Clean. Met some really nice people there.

Disliked: We booked a double room but instead we got a twin room. Also, the 'ocean view' is quite a stretch. When standing outside the room in front of the door to the room, it is true you could see the ocean over some trees (or to the left down a road aways) but not what you think of when it says 'ocean view'.

Liked: Very close to the beach. Coco. Owner lent us beach chairs and umbrella free of charge. Comfortable couches and hammocks on deck. Mosquito nets.

Disliked: Bikes are very old. The inner tube in the back tire of the bike I used actually came out while I was riding. I had to get off the bike and drag it back to the hostel. I was still charged the full amount.

Liked: Little cozy hostel right by the beach, with fresh squeezed orange juice and home-made bread (wholewheat and chocolate) for breakfast, clean, porch with lots of seating-accommodations and two, very nice and friendly owners, who made this a very rewarding stay!!!Go within the low-season, when there isn't too many people around, this way you'll have a big room all for yourself and the one travelling with you - if not it might be a bit crowded - but not to worry, for all the high-season traveller, extension is already in progress. BEST PLACE YET!!!! MUST GO!!!!

Disliked: Nothing!!
