  • "Long gone glory"

    17 December 2016

    "It wasn't in the first place the old or dirty facilities that gave us an unpleasant feeling. It was the fact that it looked abandoned. So we started already a little bit unhappy when we arrived. Then we found out the pool and kitchen were not clean.<br/>Our unpleasant feeling grew when we came back from dining out. We found that the bathroom was really rusty and filthy and we found cockroaches and other insects in our bedroom. We decided not to stay and left for a hotel nearby. <br/>One advantage: we got a full refund when we went for complaining the next day. <br/>It could be a nice place, if they would put more effort in maintaining the place."

  • "Cheap stay somewhere fun near the beach"

    10 October 2016

    "Very basic, do not think that you will be getting luxury. Otherwise it was a fun stay somewhere different, we were in one of the tents. There was a mix up with the payment, they had no card machine which wasn't properly communicated beforehand (esp as you pay deposit with card and are told to bring card with you). Arrived late around 10.30pm and hosts came and gave us blankets. Toilets and showers are outside and super basic so do not stay here if you are not prepared for that, but perfectly fine enjoyable stay!"

  • "Super stay"

  • "Awesome!"

    28 October 2013

    "This is one for the books. If you are looking to stay in a clean, friendly and affordable place, this is it! The couple-owners are fantastic and the whole property is amazing. There is a swimming pool and an outside bar, this is definitely a place you could relax AND have a party at! And the location is fantastic, with an ocean view. You can even hear the ocean at night, its great."

  • "Brilliant!"

    27 September 2013

    "We stayed in a wooden cabin for 4 days with our 2 year old. The establishment has recently been taken over and there are a lot of improvements already in place. The location is great, the place is really beautiful and clean and the staff made us feel completely like part of the family! Will definitely be back!"
