    Property condition

    4/5 Good

    The beds require mosquito netting. Currently mosquitoes get in the room easily, and there are many of them.

    Stayed 6 nights in May 2019


    The pictures and description do not represent the property and are misleading. On arrival having booked spacious ocean front hotel with separate kitchen and seating area we were offered a small dark cabin in a different part of the hotel, not ocean front, full of mosquitoes, more like a hostel than anything pictured on Expedia. We raised this to Expedia who even now 3 weeks later still haven't been able to contact anyone at the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel unless you are absolutely sure you are staying in the Illuminar hotel part of the Buena Vibra Collective.

    Stayed 3 nights in Mar 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    i liked the proximity to the beach. There was nothing I did not like.

    Stayed 4 nights in Jan 2019

    4/5 Good

    There were yoga facilities and a vegan restaurant next door.

    Stayed 5 nights in Dec 2018

    5/5 Excellent

    Grounds are beautiful in a very small but fun and vibrant area. A few good restaurants within walking distance and right on the beach. No tv or WiFi but if your staying here and hiding away in your room your not appreciating everything this area has to offer.
