I stayed at Hotel Casa Anita for two nights. It was very clean and comfortable. Wear your walking shoes because there is no elevator at this picturesque hotel! It has amazing architecture, though. The steps themselves are beautiful!
To economize, I stayed in the cheapest room, but I think I had the best view! I got to see the beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean. There is a picture of this great view online in the advertisement.
There was no hairdryer in the room so I had to ask for one. Also, my room was missing the hotel book which informs you about what you need to know. The hotel is convenient to the beach. You just have to walk 5 minutes along the little road, which has a convenience store, and then turn left down the steep hill along the narrow street which takes you to the beach. That is about a 10-minute walk to the beach on a quaint, narrow shopping street. I had breakfast at a little place called "Coffee Cup", a nice omelette with egg and tomato, along with toast and fruit. Later in the day, I had a delicious fish dinner at a wonderful restaurant called "Si Senor", located near the bottom of that little street, and opens onto the beach, itself. The waiters were professional and friendly. My waiter, Luis, made me an excellent Caesar Salad to go with my dinner.
Everyone at Hotel Casa Anita was so kind, helpful, and welcoming, including Geraldo and Ivan, the managers at the front desk. I definitely would stay there again!
