Quaint hotel right next to the beach
Posted Dec 10, 2016
At first I was a little disappointed with my room. For 3 years I had rented a room for a similar price at another facility not too far away. My room there had TV, a wardrobe (closet), shelves, a room safe, and a mini-fridge. My room at Hotel Brasilito did not have a closet of any sort, no room safe, and worst of all, no mini-fridge. I like to buy fresh fruits and bottled water which I keep cold in the fridge. The management apologized for the absence of these items and tried their best to accommodate me, but explained that only one room had a mini-fridge (already spoken for). They were willing to move me to a room with a closet, but I had by this time managed to organize my belongings on shelving, so not enough of a reason to move.
On the positive side, the visual setting was very pleasant and I had only to walk across the hotel's open air restaurant and patio, and cross a sand road to be on the beach. Many shops and restaurants (Sodas) within walking distance. My room had good air-conditioning and a balcony overlooking the street and a grassy square beyond. Shower had plenty of hot water. The hotel bar has two-for-one Happy Hour from 4-6pm every day except Monday (bar and restaurant are closed). The staff was very pleasant and even fun to engage. The area is very lively and noisy. Not a place for those desiring peace and quiet. Parking (free) is not well protected so get full insurance when renting a car (my rental was side-swiped; primarily a paint scrape).
