Passamos ótimos dias na cabana, muito aconchegante e a vista é mesmo linda. A Monica foi super acessível e solícita toda vez que precisamos entrar em contato.
Communication prior to our stay was solely in Spanish. Luckily, my husband speaks Spanish so he was able to respond to the emails. Having my husband understand the directions was very useful as it is very difficult to find places in Punta del Diablo.
Monica was not the contact person upon arrival and the person that ended up showing us to the place wasn't as warm, welcoming & helpful as our other Airbnb hosts. It wasn't clear who the contact person was despite the names we were given via email because when we went to the restaurant (where we were instructed to go if we had any concerns), we asked for those people and they weren't there at the time. We were instructed by patrons of the restaurant to go to the back of the restaurant where there was a residence and ended up asking the man in the home. He seemed to be associated with the cabana but it would have been better to have a clearer contact person. In addition, there were no instructions for checking out.
This Airbnb stay was a lesson for me to look and read very closely at what comes with the place prior to reserving. I've had such great Airbnb stays prior to this one that I guess I didn't think to look at some of the things that make a stay comfortable. My mistake. The cabana did not have towels or bedsheets/pillowcases. We didn't realize the lack of bedsheets & pillowcase until bedtime because there was a blanket covering the bed. This was one of the reasons we ended up trying to find the contact people to enquire and the man we ended up talking to said we could borrow sheets and towels which was a gesture we appreciated. We had to pay 200 pesos for washing and we asked for a receipt in case we came into complications about paying the fee and they didn't provide one. These kinds of things took time away from us enjoying our trip.
It should be noted that you only get one toilet paper roll and one soap bar. We brought our own soap and our stay was short so one roll was enough. Just wanted to give a heads-up.
The cabana is a great location in relation to the beach (about a 10 -15 minute walk) and to the main 'strip.' The pictures are an accurate representation of the place. It's got a good atmosphere and we enjoyed having meals on the upper deck with a beautiful view of Punta del Diablo. Another plus is that it's close to a supermarket.
If you are a light sleeper, I wouldn't recommend this place because the walls are thin. There's a restaurant right next door and it can be a party town...we could hear people from a noisy house about 1/2km out.
Overall, we liked Punta del Diablo but the cabana only slightly made the trip more enjoyable & doesn't compare to other amazing Airbnb stays.
Cabana muito comoda e com uma vista linda! Ótima opção em punta del diablo.
Gracias Shopia! Saludos
Infelizmente não conseguimos ficar na casa por um problema com a caixa da agua. Mas rapidamente nos colocaram em outra casa e ficou tudo bem. De qqr forma adoramos Mangrullo e certamente vamos voltar pra lá no futuro. Belissimas acomodações e infra-estrutura geral, além da vista para o mar que é maravilhosa.
