I think this place looks better in person then in pictures, if that's possible!! We LOVED this place, it was set amongst the jungle, you could hear all the birds and sometimes monkeys. It was so relaxing in the evening, we would be gone all day then come back and relax and it was so open and airy and you just felt so at peace. Place was cleaned for us everyday, when a water line broke in town they fixed us up right away. So kind and gracious! Must eat at 'soda" Johannas, she had the best food. I recommend staying here as it is a little south of P.V(which i felt was more for a younger party crowd) the beaches are better in this area! Rent bikes, they are a great way to get around, and cheap too! $4 or $5 aday! This place is a must visit!! And they have smaller places and a larger place, so check their website out too!!
