My boyfriend and I stayed for just 4 nights last January. We originally wanted the surfer lookout on top, but when we saw it, it was a little too basic for us, so we upgraded to the one bedroom apartment. The apartment was gorgeous! The kitchen was superb; well equipt with beautiful authentic, clay Mexican plates, bowls and cups. The bed was very big and comfortable, and whole place was nicely decorated, including a great couch and dining table. The best part was the balcony! Epitome of beachfront - ocean and vast beach right in front of the hotel. Every morning I would make coffee and sit on the balcony and watch the whales swim by and blow water out of their blow holes. Dawn/early morning is the best time to the see the whales. We were able to cook most of our meals and eat on the balcony. Forgot the name of the beach, but there is a beach nearby where fishermen dock and bring in their fresh catch of the day for sale - we got 4 fresh red snapper fillets for like $5 i think (homemade fish tacos!) There are also a handful of restaurants on the main highway, before the turn off to the house. Please get good directions - very confusing dirt roads, very easy to get lost. Bring lots of maps of area so you can explore all the great beaches nearby.
Complaints? Did not know this beach was not suitable for swimming - very rough waves. Saw quite a few surfers in there though. Also a bit of construction going on right under our balcony, which wasn't too bad since we were gone most of the day, and the construction is probably over now.
The beach is wonderful for long walks, and the beach is huge, so easy to find a very isolated spot to sit. Robert is very welcoming and friendly, and will try his best to accommodate you. I have not seen the inside of the "main house" which sleeps many people, but it looked great from the outside, and I know it has a pool table. But I highly recommend the one bedroom for a couple!
Overall, very relaxing stay on a gorgeous stretch of beach.
