Near the beach, good ac and hot showers. Perfect breakfast. Good place to be for a couple of days. Beware, there is not much more to do here except for surfing ( there are schools if you want to learn it, his name is moorey) chill and relax.

Hotel Popoyo is excellent! Great staff(Gloria, Sheila and the rest of the team are the best!), extra comfortable room, beautiful and amazing facilities and pool. We would definitely recommend this place. Oh... And the restaurant serves wonderful food at a very affordable price. Try the breaded lobster or the fried whole fish... Delicious!

The hotel was small, but the service and the food was fantastic. The rooms were sparse but very clean and comfortable and the A/C was exceptional. They have excellent wifi so if you need contact it is generally available. It is an excellent value especially for the price.
