Recently spent 5 nights here and on the whole had a good experience. Rooms are shabby but adequate. Find out when the property's well will be pumping for a good shower - otherwise it's a dribble, thanks to the drought! Wolle was friendly and helpful when he was there, but he went to SJ for a few days, upon which the non-paying residents took over everything and it became very noisy and we couldn't use the beautiful dining/living room and felt generally unwelcome. Jorge, who does the breakfast most days as well as the laundry and cleaning, was kind and helpful, but he speaks no English. There is family-style dinner, but it wasn't explained to us when it would be available and if it really is open to all guests. Also not explained was that one of the resident dogs, unlike practically all the area dogs, is aggressive and has been known to bite! The beach, a sort jungle walk away, is nice, but small and not private as people and dogs walk along there, which is fine, but watch for dog poop! All in all, with Wolle there to keep a handle on things, the atmosphere is laid-back, easy going, relaxing, all that you could want in a modest cost, low-key vacation.
