Excellent location and customer service. We stayed right across registration desk. Nicolas and his family are great hosts. The apt was impeccable and we enjoyed the balcony/decks. Recommend ordering the breakfast and letting them select fresh options. It was plentiful, delicious and inexpensive.

Lovely hotel but the town wasn't as nice
I stayed with my girlfriend for one week we enjoyed our stay and the family that own the hotel are very kind and helpful. However we didn't find much to enjoy in the town of Punta Del Diablo. Nothing really happens in the town until after 8pm and there isn't much to do besides eat and drink. The beach was beautiful and an easy walk from the hotel and by far the best part of the entire experience. Breakfast was good but not a buffet as found in most hotels. It consisted of some toast with butter and jam and your choice of accompaniment (e.g. Scrambled eggs or Yogurt.) it was always very tasty and promptly prepared. The only negative about our time in the hotel was that during the night two of the rooms were robbed while guests were asleep in their beds. This terrified my girlfriend and she didn't feel safe anymore. (The thieves entered via the bathroom window which had been left unlocked.) Hope this is helpful to future travellers.

Friendly Place!
The accommodations were very nice and the owner was great! He offered us an upgrade for a small charge and was very pleasant. Do not hesitate in selecting this hotel. Although this is not beach front it is probably in much better shape than most that were from what I saw. Thanks Nicholas and Mateo! Hope your dog keeps all of his pieces!

Like summer camp
Friendly and helpful owners. Basic room that felt more like a summer camp cabin than hotel. Porch with hammocks was pretty cool. About a 10-15 minute walk from the beach.

A nice, clean hard-to-find place!
Very friendly owners live right next door. Rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Be sure to ask specific directions before you head there. It is not easy to find, especially in the dark, down dirt roads, with few people in the streets to ask directions.
