We had just left Cancun from a horrid experience & were looking for a new place to stay. We told Safari, the owner, everything that happened in Cancun. EVERYTHING. She was so apologetic and immediately set us up in a King room - and told us we would always be welcome and safe there. We've gone back every year since April 2010. It's no frills, clean, safe and perfect.
Safari (daughter), Kate (Mom) & baby Dania (granddaughter) are three Canadian women owners of this small- hostel like stay near Playa Norte. Safari has been coming to Isla as a baby herself with her mom & they decided to invest in an existing business in 2009.

Our neighbor Danny came too - a delightful young woman who's husband had had to go back to the States because his father was sick. Mmmmm pizza....

"No problem, I'll show you in the water. Next person get in" Umm...now at number 9 (3 at the time) I said , " No. We have an equipment failure. She won't be able to control her ...
... beach... and then we noticed a spotlight that had begin to shine ever so brightly on us... then we noticed a security man standing on the beach telling us to get out of the water. Mortified, I say "We can't get out, we're naked!" No response. "At least turn around!" No response. He wasn't giving up. So we ran out of the water with our little naked bodies, past the security man and in front of the observing crowd to gather ...
... s (the restaurant owns them) wants £20! I begin to reason with him that as it's only half a day required it should be a lot less. Apparently because it's sunny he will get more business even though half of them are empty! I walk away and guess what - he does the usual last ditch offer, so Efrosini goes back to barter with him. She succeeds and we get four loungers and one parasol for £10. The same waiter brings our lunch and and drinks and we just relax and ...
... by Saturday so we can do our tour. The staff at the hospital are great, even though there is some lost in translation issues! Medicine is interesting in Mexico, you can buy syringes and needles and injectable medicine and then just go home and inject yourself, no need for a qualified medical practitioner. Also, I've seen medicines that are prescription only for sale on the shelves here. It's pretty interesting really. And the prices vary enormously so it totally pays to ...
