Little Paradise in Paradise of Playa carrillo.
It was just great.... a little paradise in the Paradise of Playa carrillo. We just loved it! This hotel is soooo private so exclusive that is perfect for a get away with the couple! :)) AWWWWW so nice and the owner and the rest of the stuff they are sooooo friendly .... no comments about it. It was really nice!

Poor1.0 / 5
Booked four months in advance, only communication was from When we turned up after a very long journey we were greeted by the smug indifference of the proprietor informing us that as we have not paid a deposit (we were never asked to do so by either or the proprietor himself) he did not have a room for us. He had instead conveniently found a replacement room for us of a much lower standard with someone else. As is with peak season this was our only option.

Fair2.0 / 5
Not an Ecolodge, more a family intrusion!
The lodge appeared to be made from recycled offcuts from various bits of wood and plastic cladding. However the kitchenette had all facilities, the bathroom had a mirror surrounded by lights and the room had a black and zebra theme with sparkly velour cushion covers...not what we were expecting from an ecolodge! The breakfast was a poor affair with left over bits of jam in a dish, some bread and coffee and a few pieces of melon that you had to help yourself from on a 4 ft counter. This was while the hosts had a full breakfast with eggs etc in the centre table. The pool was very small and did not look clean and was occupied by the hosts children, as was the covered bed near the not very appealing or welcoming! It felt as if we were intruding in a family home and grounds, rather than a small lodge!
