My husband and some guests attempted to spend a week in this dump. Here is why this place gets a terrible rating.
We paid for an early check-in weeks in advance. We show up around 10 AM as advised to Rob (the owner) and there is already a family staying there because they overbooked. So his mother Lily (who was nice at the time) had us stay in a run down shack around the corner with all our luggage until the other family packed up and left. Then we had to wait an additional hour while the cleaning lady mopped up. She also didn't empty the garbage, which was overflowing.
We finally get to the house and some of the bonuses listed in this advertisement were not there or were broken. There was no blender, fridge was broken, tv was the size of a laptop screen. Also the stove was so awful it took 45 min to boil a pot of water. A friend of mine was resting in a hammock outside when two men in a pickup truck flew into the driveway at no less than 30 mph with a new fridge, which when installed (outside for some reason), seemed to work fine. My friend opened the door and it came right off.
The location is right in the middle of pretty much an adandoned neighborhood. People drive by at 3 miles an hour while staring. They park in front of the house across the street with their "girlfriends" and perform unsightly sexual acts. Kids come to the beach at night to do drugs. The beach itself is a nice view, but I wouldn't attempt to swim in there. There are TONS of sea urchins everywhere and the whole bottom is jagged rocks, so false advertising saying you can surf or boogey board here, unless you'd prefer to end up in a hospital later. Also, the fact we saw a police car everyone 15 min indicated this wasn't the best neighborhood. And the closest good swimming spot is about a 45 min walk down the beach behind a run down "resort." There were also plenty of stray dogs in the area and the house had crabs running around like ants.
To top off the whole experience, at night when we were about to lie down for sleep, we found all the beds infested with BEDBUGS. They were all over the place. We had enough. We promptly called Lily and demanded a refund as there was no way we were staying here any longer. She showed up to try to compare gnats to bedbugs, which was pretty much insulting our intelligence, since they were obviously differnt. There were small blood stains on the sheets from other people being bitten by the bedbugs. Lily tried saying it was rust from the ocean air. Sorry, fabric doesn't rust. Try again.
While waiting outside planning our exit to the nearest hotel (remember, I mentioned Lily was nice before), she shows up screaming and throwing a fit about us and demands for us to leave with nowhere to go at almost 2 AM with our luggage. Rob and Lily were advised that the cab would take about an hour or so to arrive but she was incredibly rude and ignorant the whole time about letting us stay under the car port, since it was raining. Rob later calls my cellphone and says he will be calling the police.
This whole stay was a nightmare. We have the pictures to prove it. I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. We are in the process of notifying the authorities as we feel they should be punished for submitting such bad service and false advertisement to out of towners.
