10/10 Exceptional

Support Local
We were only here for two nights, but were so impressed by the friendly staff, and the views, that we have decided to come back for at least a week next time! We much preferred the local vibe of a small independent hotel over the soulless feel of some of the large resorts. Can’t wait to come back!

Great view
The view was amazing. Air conditioning system was kind of tricky to figure out. Could have used an extra blanket on our bed.

2/10 Poor

False advertising
Came for a two week stay. Nothing about the room or reviews were accurate and I wonder if some people on here had stayed at a different location. View here are amazing. However the room was so gross. Had to find new accommodations after landing. Alicia the “mother” of the family that owns this motel (not resort) was the worst of them all. Completely Nasty. Bikes are rusted, seats don’t adjust. Asked for housekeeping and they didn’t clean and replace wine glasses, clean the bathroom or Vacuum. I had to call the front desk a few hours later and request that they come back. I used a rag to wipe down all the dust on the headboards etc and got charged $5 on my CC upon arrival home because I had “destroyed” their rag and had signed a “waiver” when I checked in. That never happened. They advertise that place affirms that follow EXTRA hygiene and cleaning practices. That’s a lie. They advertised that the place is remodeled and the rooms have full kitchens. Upon arrival I was told I had the “panoramic ocean front view” and the premium rooms (3rd floor) are The only ones that had been remodeled, so maybe like five rooms in the entire tiny property? No full fridge or Kitchenette. Just mini fridge. For two weeks! Additionally it’s not the premium rooms that the photos represent, but the premium Junior suites. Buyers beware. This location is amazing if you’re staying for one night and are sleeping with your clothes on. Pictures are attached.

2/10 Poor

I have stayed in many types of places. Here, the people were pleasant and the lawn on the beach was nice but the room, not so much. The sheets and towels were very gray and needed bleach. When I looked inside the pillow case, it was yellow and gross. We slept with our clothes on and our own towels over the pillows. I wore flip flops in the shower because the tub was so stained or something...Been to developing countries and never felt like this. :(
