Awesome place.
1 night is 170 pp. If you stay longer the price drops. We ended up staying 6 nights and it was 120.
The owner are very very nice.
Showers are very good and hot. Clean.
Kitchen we'll equipped.
Place is close to the beach and all of the restaurants/ bars.
It's not quite even at night because you sleep next to the street , and you don't have views or anything but for us it was perfect.
Electricity as well.
Pay cash

We stayed in a chalet due to a var breakdown for couple of days. We were the only guests around. Staf is friendly and helpful. Restaurant basic but OK. Chalet had good bed with mosquito protection. Warm shower and good water pressure. Fast internet with wifi in the chalet. Swimmingpool and animals around the chalet and campsite makes it complete.

This is a small craft boat launch. There’s a paved road leading to a gravel upper parking lot and a lower lot/boat launch. It’s a good place for van and car dwellers to park for a night or two. There is river access but no amenities. There is an unmarked trail across from the upper lot that will lead you to some of the canoe camping sites (maybe 1/2 mile). These sites have a picnic table and fire pits + a place for a tent and are free with no reservations. In the summer this place may be busier but it is not busy at all during the off season. Please give campsites to canoe campers if they show up.

We found small propane cylinders here for our camp stove that usually uses the green Coleman’s. Refilling our normal tank in Bucaramanga was unsuccessful but at least we can cook until we get to another city.

Nice place to stay to visit the Copán ruins and the village Copán Ruinas (nice restaurants and coffee shops). They increased the price to 200L per car per night, which I still think is ok. They will give you a room key if you ask for a shower.

Laundry is super expensive though, paid 450L for 2 bags (washed and dried, not folded, Just dumped into the bag). Probably 50L per lb now.

Quiet at night, unless the gardener starts his leave blower at 7am...

Wifi is good, didn't find power sockets near the parking area though. Shade, so no sun to charge with solar. Toilets are clean. Unsure if the restaurant was open, they did serve some breakfast to hotel guests. Pet friendly, our cat was warmly welcomed even if he kept running through the lobby.

Here for one night as part of the Bluerhino Orange River tour. Highly recommended.

Perfect for an overnight or possibly longer. Beautiful lake and path around it. Pull in behind the lake and enjoy your own hidey hole! Very quiet, no interruptions and great Verizon.

Nice spot to listen to the waves while you sleep!

Park opposite the historic site - you have a bit more privacy from the houses. But you can go further.

Pretty busy in the day time but if you pulled up in the evening and are early risers, you should be fine.

Beautiful mists in the morning!

Toilets and there’s definitely space for a big rig.

Lovely 1km trail to the coast to see the Balancing Rock.

I called and asked if I could stay one night. They said ok for a night. He said the city frowns upon it so they don’t recommend it but in a pinch it works. Come in late, be out early. There was 1 other van and RV parked there. Very quiet, safe and enough lights to see everything.

R1,100 a night. They've added a small ''spa'' and gym. Very clean, but they have no smoking rooms. It's all set out in a garden with blocks of hotel rooms, so finding yours in the dark can be tricky. The restaurants are ok, one a fast-food chain (fish) and the other sorta Italianish. Rooms have air con, TV, hot and cold water -- and its potable. No camping. There is WiFI and it's quite fast and free.

small update: Some stuff was missing from the laundry and some stuff torn... Friendly people, but this went worse than expected, especially for this price.

We drove to the end of this road in our 26ft class c and had no problems. however, it was so dang crowded and packed that we turned around and decided to look elsewhere. So many 5th wheels, trailers, skoolies, tents. Just too many people for us. This is a Thursday in mid October.

It isn’t a 24h gas station but there’s a security guard during the night. The bathrooms are locked, so it is just ok if you want to park your RV.
