This hotel is nicely located in a funky neighbourhood near a great surfing beach lined with good, inexpensive restaurants. The rooms were very basic, but clean. That's the good news. The bad news is: the pool was NASTY, so dirty you couldn't see the bottom. The day we left a young man was cleaning the scum ring with a cleaner...

We stayed here for one night with the intention of staying for a few more but decided after one night not to leave. While the pool looked nice the room was dirty and the staff not very friendly. Wouldn't recommend this place.

Beach: "Playa Zicatela" is definitely one of the best surfing spots/beaches on earth ... for advanced surfers! Don't (!) go there for swimming or if you're a surfing beginner, but choose e.g. "La Punta", if you surfed before and want to try a fast hollow point-break wave with left direction, sandy/rock bottom and normal length or "Carrizalillo", if you're a...

We stayed during refurbishment of the hotel. There was noise from the builders in the day and the pool was dirty due to the dust and debris. Think charging 600pesos a night is abit much in the circumstances. The location is great and the room itself was lovely with a fantastic view of the ocean. When the refurb is complete...
