I walked up and down the street into six hotels and once I stepped foot in their beautiful gardens, I knew I wanted to stay here. The room was simple, but spacious. Sergio, the manager, was sweet, funny and always available for any question, problem or to just hang out and talk.

Sometimes you are lucky finding a magic place. This is one of them.. The saying here is that "someone are so poor that the only thing they have is money" Here it about the atmosphere and music and care more about rescuing turtles than making money. Next time I will take the surfclass cause the team here is really cool.

Awesome experience camping on their grounds. Friendly, helpful staff. Virtually on the beach, and close enough to walk into the center of town but far enough to escape the music. All round, good vibe, great time, and perfect experience... Reccomended

I took a group of 38 students I was leading to Olmito and they took great care of us. The location is unbeatable, right in front of the beach and the staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful. The setup is great with a treehouse for adults feeling and the ambiance couldn't be better! Plus they have great breakfasts!

The hostal itself seemed laidback and has a pleasant garden with plenty of hammocks and chairs available, so we thought it would be a relaxed place to stay with kids. At first glance the room on the first floor reached by a rather...
