Decent staff, very attentive staff. Near the pier, which was great, we were able to walk. Good food and comfortable room. Also very close to town, a short walk. All very clean. Special mention to the manager, Fernando, who makes all the difference to the hotel.

I stayed here with my girlfriend. Each day the staff prepared delicious meals for us and accommodated our taste preferences. They even offered us some snorkel equipment as we did not bring fins. The trips that the staff organized was absolutely flawless. Each day had many highlights, snorkeling with penguins, sea lions, iguanas, manta rays and hiking the volcano! We...

Great lodge. The staff was very courteous and friendly. They went the extra mile to make us feel at home. The cook was always making sure that my dietary restrictions were observed. The room was very clean and it was a comfortable place to sleep in. Always kept clean by the staff. Within walking distance from the port and beaches.

The Wooden House lodge (locals call it "Pailón") is a beautiful, lovely kept lodge on the "main road" just 5 walking minutes from the pier and 10 walking minutes from the heart of "the village". Our first impression was great: colourful wood fence, clean entry, and a lovely common open space (chilling, breakfast, bar, restaurant, small pool, reception, snorkeling equipment)...
