In desperate need to switch accommodations from a different hotel on the island, we had difficulty finding properties that had vacancy during Valentine's Day week. Pancho's Villa came to our rescue! We stumbled upon the property following a sign off of the main road and were lucky they had a one basic room available for the remainder of our stay. The rooms are very basic, but clean. Ours had a double and single bed, separate bathroom, and a TV and AC which came in very useful for hiding away from the elements after an unfortunate sunburn. The hotel is pretty centrally located right off the main street, which is nice for quickly getting to restaurants/tours/etc., but noise from the main street can sometimes be heard (we had the misfortune of staying during two nights when VDay dances were held on the nearby basketball court -- blaring music until 3am with our walls shaking! be sure to check that there aren't any dances going on during your stay!) The lady in the office was very kind, as was the housekeeper who cleaned our room and replaced our sheets and towels. You can also go up to the roof where there is a hammock and a couple chairs and watch the sunrise and sunset -- a very romantic, hidden place. I'd definitely recommend Pancho's for anyone looking for a comfortable, affordable stay.
