6/10 Good

The area has no restaurants or stores within walking distance so we had to eat in the hotel. Tuna was over cooked and took an hour to be served. Don't visit on weekend. No curfew and fellow Panamanian guests up until 4 a.m. with loud music and talking.

El dueño es un grosero y la atención al cliente es pésima. No lo recomiendo. No vayan.

Relación precio - calidad OK
El sitio es muy agradable, nos hospedamos en una habitación triple con baño privado y la misma es bastante cómoda, sólo necesita un poco de mantenimiento. El lugar en general es muy tranquilo y agradable, un spot perfecto para relajarse y descansar. La bajada a la playa está a unos pasos y el sitio cuenta con una pequeña piscina y rancho que complementan muy bien la estadía. El personal es muy amable y se preocupan por atenderte. Referente a la comida, solo desayunamos, el menú es sencillo pero si vas en plan de no cocinar y desconectar, resuelve. En general por el precio pagado por la habitación me parece bien el lugar, lo repetiría para una estadía corta de fin de semana.
