We had a beautiful stay in vanilla's guesthouse. The owners are nice and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean. We could enjoy the huge terrace every night, there is a fridge to keep your food. The location is next to the beach and the center, but very quiet!


Thank you so much to the Bocarro family who are decent, honest, kind and sweet people and I would not necessitate to recommend their hostel to you. Thank you to Paulina, Erwin, Erwin's lovely mum and Erwin and Paulina's lovely boys. I will come and see you next February.

Nice place, nicley located for the beech and stuff. Noise & cigarette smoke from a-joining rooms can be intrusive during the night. Owner is lovely and helpful, we do recommend her accommodation.


Really nice rooftop area. Hard to find hostel since no sign and staff couldnt really give advice and answer questions about further travels, directions for market and train station. However nice hammock to chill out in and very good that we could leave bags and have a shower after check.out the day we left.


Absolutely fab chilled out place Paulena and Erwin are the friendliest helpful nice people ever Highly Recommended


It was very pleasant stay! Very kind famil will take care of you for the whole time. Location was perfect, maybe not the first line but right in the proper distance, so you can have a feel - I am going to the beach. Open veranda on the second floor will help you fully enjoy evening stay.


We had a great stay. The guesthouse is managed by a very nice and kind family. They were always very helpful but not disturbing. They offered a pay per use wifi service, but as it didn't work properly, they did not charge for it. The last day they offered to keep our luggage and let us use the shower after having checked out. The place is very nice, full of plants and it has a comfortable hammock. It is located very close to the seaside, full of small shops and restaurants.


This guesthouse/homestay was a great choice. Far enough away from the noise of the clubs but close enough for it to be supremely convenient. Apart from the location and security being great our hosts are really what made us very satisfied with our stay. They where warm and friendly from the onset and were more than willing to share information about the area, something which you can never take for granted and triumphs what you read in any book n matter how new. Would definitely return...
