The comfort suite is wonderful. Beautiful room and the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in! Unfortunately i cannot say the same for the lower priced rooms which are incredibly small. Staff is friendly and location is perfect

Give it a try!
This is by far one of my favorite stops on my Mexican trip so far. It's very quiet, chill and a great place to lay your head. Being afraid to stay here is the furtherest from my mind. They do offer natural alternative ceremonies and nobody has even mentioned it. There are flyers to read and educate yourself. The beds are comfy and the rooms are pretty good size. It's nice to have "my own" place. The kitchen is a bit rough but nothing you can't improvise with. If you've ever stayed in a hostel you'll understand. The bathrooms are open and when you shower, there is a huge door to close for privacy. It's right on the main road into the beach, so it's easy to access transportation to and from the beach.

The vibe was nice, a great place to relax and chill especially for those people looking to disconnect from the hustle and grind. No TV's was cool. I got to write and think.

This place is truly beautiful. The staff is so friendly and the atmosphere extremely relaxing. Shared facilities but all the time clean. It is in a perfect location between the beach and the town.

It was one of the most incredible hospitality experiences. You truly feel so welcomed and as if you arrived home. Every single member of the staff were amazing, attentive, helpful and made me feel safe at all times. I wish I could of stayed more than 3 nights, will come back one day. Keia is an angel on earth. Going to miss being here so much.
