A few of my friends and I stayed here on a recent trip. The location was great, along with the price. The rooms were just ok, probably pretty standard for the area. The best part was the help and service from the management. We loved Dora! She was a great help. She helped us book a couple trips and gave... More

We were looking for a lower cost hotel that was clean, and near the beach. Few amenities, and only 7 rooms, this was a quaint hotel that fulfilled our needs. It was clean (no bugs!!!), and the desk staff was VERY helpful in assisting us. The beds were very comfortable. I would not hesitate to return there.

Under new management. No frills but if you get a second floor on the balcony you have a great spot. Don't expect much beyond a clean room, A/C, and a friendly staff and you won't be dissapointed. Considering the price and location it's pretty good.

I think this is one of the best deals in San Pedro. The hotel is in the heart of town, and you can walk from the water ferry along the beach to it. Its also right next to Amigos Del Mar so you don't have to get up any earlier to go diving. Dora and her boyfriend have really taken... More
