We booked a room with private bathroom and were delighted with the price, helpful staff, poolside luxury, excellent $4 breakfast (which we split) and the location was unbeatable. Not much guard left in the lovely old Rottweiler guard dog on the premises but we loved having her around.

An affordable option for the region, with laundry service (although I didn't use it) many hammocks and an open air kitchen and balcony common area where you'll have to hang out to charge your phone as their are no outlets in the rooms.
