We ended up spending three nights in the cabin and spent a lot of our time on the beach or in the perfectly clear sea.

Very nice place. Cool bungalows, delicious breakfast and friendly staff. The only down side to the stay was the highway is very close and you do hear cars screech o a stop to the speed bump out the front of the hostel. But you get free bike hire to go into town and the ruins/beach and the ammenities are clean with constant gas heated hot water. I would stay their again. Biggest down side would be very limited and bad restaurants near by. Go to town for a decent meal for lunch and dinner.
