No Complaints

Apart from its location I have no complaints with Papaya. The double rooms are MORE than adequate and the private bathrooms have hot, high-pressure water mains. Beds have mosquito nets, there are desks, shelves and a floor fan for all your needs. At 8 to 10 dollars a night it's a bit exxy but you won't find anything all-inclusive (breakfast, hot water, wifi, etc) for cheaper around town. The one downfall is that the music on Montanita's streets is always on full volume until about 3 in the morning, even on a Monday, so take earplugs or be prepared to pay a little more for somewhere quieter down the beach.

... t remember my email password! I attempted so many times it finally locked me out! The internet service was S L O W so each attempt seemed to take hours, but in reality it was probably only 30-40 seconds per screen. Still, we had a problem. I let Andrea get on to pay hers while we sorted out a new strategy. I DID know my Pay Pal password, so once Andrea was finished (it took her almost 20 minutes and she knew all her passwords), then I ...

Forget the Guide Book, Stick With Local Fare

... home fries. Yet two more mistakes! The pad Thai came soaked in some goopy sauce. The noodles were the right kind, but it wasn’t right to call it pad Thai. The fish was blackened but overcooked. The home fries might as well have been dehydrated potatoes, so dry and tasteless as it were. Worst of all, prices for gringo food is 3X as much as local food.

... owners is an artist, there are paintings all over the walls. There are more than 100 games, including foosball and air hockey. All of the rooms are in separate cabins outside. There are five huge, but friendly, horse sized dogs hanging out in the hotel. On the second floor there are guitars, drums, a xylophone and a game of twister built into the floor. There is a garden in the back where they all of the restaurant food is grown.
