Hotel Brasilito Review
Backpackers and travelers who don't need amenities will love this vintage, two-story, wooden hotel's affordable price and seafront location, if not its no-frills but adequate rooms. Those rooms are a bit devoid of decor, though they do have hot water and air-conditioning. Be prepared for noise: kids playing, dogs barking, and motors revving. Ask for one of the two larger rooms above the restaurant; they share a veranda with unobstructed sea views and enjoy ocean breezes. It's not for everyone, but you can't beat the price for seaside rooms. Breakfast (not included) is served in the open-air El Oasis ($$) restaurant, which also serves seafood, Mexican fish tacos, and basic burgers.
