We stayed at Casa Blanca after hearing rave reviews through MINI HOSTELS (online booking agency) and to be honest the only thing this Hostel has going for it is it's location. Staff were friendly but useless and the rooms were falling apart. Roofs leaking, live electrical cables hanging from sockets and old saggy uncomfortable beds with pillows wrapped in plastic. We booked through mini hostels and when we went to finalise the bill the hostel would not honour the booking by way of allowing us to pay the balance (90%). Mini Hostels had already charged us 10 % on our credit card, and even with proof they were adament that they had no such deal with them. We ended up paying an extra US$80 dollars just to end the nightmare and get out of there. We highly recommend people not to stay with these shonky people and they should be banned from the lonely planet book because they are crooks.
If you want to stay somewhere really decent with a great restaurant and excellent grounds - and cheaper..stay at Casa De Felipe. 10 min walk from the beach but totally worth it.

I knew about this place form Lonely Planet. I went there to check the room.
When I was taken to the top floor and I saw the view I just knew I will stay here. Literally from the bad I could see the bay and blue water =)

It was amazing. There is also patio on which hangs hammock so You can relax during sunset =)

Room was big with very high celling. On it during the day and night You could spot geckos which were making really cute sounds.

There is free wi-fi and fridge with drinks. What is nice is that their prices are really low so it is easier to buy them then go to the shop.

We knew about this place from tourist guide. When we arrived we knew we wanna stay here.

Great views from top rooms which has also huge patios. There is no A/C but it is not needed while there is nice breeze from sea.

The hostel is really safe and in night it is closed and watched. Rooms are very big and clean. In night You can hear the gecos which we found delightfull.

There is also fridge with beverages in reasonable price so You don`t have to go to shop in night what is really nice.

Don´t stay on the very top floor. We had no water 1/2 the time for three days. Water was in the rest of the hostel though. The staff was friendly, but guests are not allowed to enter and there is no area close to it where you can hang out with non-guests. As long as all of your friends are in this hostel it is a great option. Rooms clean. And there is even a little fountain to wash the sand off your feet when you enter. Beautiful views.

the hotel sounds great on their website but i have no idea where the pictures of the room are from! true the hotel is right on the beach but once you walk through the doors you walk out of paradise! the room we had was dark, and we did not have the seaview balcony with hammock. room 5 looks onto the corridor! the bathroom was flacking everywhere and there is only cold water, thats fine because it is so hot. the music from the bar down the street is so loud you can not keep the window open for air so it can get very stuffy at night. we also think we may have seen a rat but can not be sure as it ran under the door and out of sight just as we walked back into the room. the kitchen is good though but we didnt use it after the rat incident! the front door gets locked early at night and so once we were locked out ringing the bell after dinner for about 20 minutes and another time we were locked in the hostel with no sign of any staff!
