We stayed for 4 nights in a castila. Accommodation and location are fine for a backpacker experience. Price is a bit high compared to the rest of Tofo. What really let it down was the service. Bar men, receptionists are rude and continually ignore or shout across people. It's fine, but there are better places in Tofo now with lovely...

We wanted to camp in this place. But everything they announced in their information seems not to be true. Good sights on the top of the dune? No way at Fatima's nest. You can camp at the back and next to the road. Toilets stink awfully. We had a thorough look at the place and left. Maybe nice for young...

We stayed at Fatima's Nest as it was the only option for us to camp and have access to a kitchen. Fatima is a pretty place but obviously running on a 'achieved fame' and unfortunately the service really lacks behind. The staff is lazy and not very helpful. The "kitchens" that they provide are empty. You have to beg at...

The location of Fatima's Nest could not be better, right on the beach and only a couple of minutes walking from the bars and restaurants. We stayed in a hut with double bed, which was not huge but big enough and clean. Because the walls are made of wood some wind comes through which makes the hut cool down during...

We stayed in Fatima's for 2 nights. In advance we booked a bed in the dorm but when this turned out to be a very small dorm we decided to stay in a private hut. This was ok, but overpriced for such a small room without bathroom and most of the time without electricity. Also the staff was not very...

Fatima´s Nest is a friendly place, with a great common area were you can chill, enjoy the beach view, have a snack or even dinner. Staff if friendly and the location is great if you enjoy being ON the beach. Only not that great, is the time meals take to prepare (Moz style) and the fact you don't have electrical...

We did not stay at Fatimas, but visited for drinks and food. The food is great, drinks are good, view is better! It's a must visit if you are in tofo. Stop by for an R&R or a game of pool. Watch out for the hard sell from the guys near the beach. Gets a little annoying after a while.

Fatima's has one of the best locations in Tofo. Right on the beach with a nice decking looking out over the beach. However the dorms have at least 2 beds too many in them. Would not like to be staying there during busy season. There are no plug sockets except in the bar and kitchen which again, during high season,...

I have spent a whole week at Fatimas in 2013 and have not checked any trip advisor ratings then. Now I came back to spend five nights and almost didn't go because of the bad ratings on TA. it is truly amazing how different people's experiences can be in the same place. It is after all a BACKPACKERS!! Don't expect...

First of all, I did not stay there and only had a night out in this place over New Years. But what I have seen is absolutely disgusting. During New Years the poorly maintained men's room (no soap etc.) was closed to make room for ladies and men were directed to a long drop nearby. It smelled like 3 day...
