This place is a well-kept secret. Great price, mostly friendly staff, clean, safe. It's a budget place, for sure, don't expect a luxury tourist hotel, but a tremendous deal with good location. Con's: courtyard/pool area is a bit of a sound chamber, and the rooms with verandas have screens at the top of the veranda windows...so you can't close sound out. The place is generally quiet, but if anyone -- or a bird -- is talking outside by the pool, you'll hear them clearly. Beds are very, very firm (Mexican style). They had *one* foam topper in the whole place. If you don't like firm, you won't like these beds. Breakfast just okay, wifi very inconsistent. Some staff not very helpful, others great. Very little English ability on the staff. Pro's: clean place (except the tile floors, which are "cleaned" daily but mopped rather inefficiently, so wear slippers), mostly friendly staff, pretty quiet (but ask for a room away from the busy street side), excellent location...close to beach and downtown, cooking facilities, nice little pool which was hardly used, several good places to eat in the area, and great price! One strip joint out on the main road but not near enough for concern. AC and TV worked fine. Will stay again (if not accompanied by a light sleeper). I give pretty strong ratings overall because it's the kind of place you're glad to get for this price range.
