Always a pleasure to stay at Sayab. I'm bias as I'm a repeat customer. + Great location. + Great and unique pool experience. + Friendly staff. - Rooms do not offer full size lockers.

Good 6.0
Room was not air-conditioned and considering 8 beds in one room was very stuffy and smelly. The staff assisting and almost all guests were Argentinians so pretty much felt like was an outsider but was fine with me as I minded my own business. Otherwise the bathrooms were clean. There is a pool, which is cool. Very loud at nights but if you don't mind this would be for you. Maybe would return.

pas vraiment emballé mais en tout cas propre...
si vous aimez le bruit et la fête vous y serais bien, rien a dire sur la propreté (ce qui est déjà bien!) en revanche la cuisine est très mal équipé et je me suis fais piqué de la nourriture (et en discutant je me suis rendu compte que je n'étais pas le seul petit casier à cadenas pour les petites affaires mais pas de casier pour les sacs dans dortoir de 6 (les autres je ne sais pas. attention, a l'arriver ils vous demande une taxe supplémentaire de 20 pesos qui est justifié par ... vous m’aurez compris!!! sinon le cadre est agréable, dommage que la piscine ne sois pas vraiment accessible la journée car on y croise des plongeurs en apprentissage... :-)

Ambiente excelente, los hostess son super amables y amigables. Siempre se respeto mucho mis cosas y mi persona. Limpieza, todo super recomendado. Miguel me ayudo a ubicarme y darme recomendaciones de lugares donde ir, muy servicial. Julian igual, muy servicial y amable. El chef comida deli, buen sabor (es opcional comer ahi, pero me parecio una buena idea y es economico), buenas opciones en la semana. Ubicación grandiosa, cerca de la 5ta, de bares, de la playa.

Schöne Anlage, freundliches Personal, gute Lage, Zimmer ok, Frühstück i.O., sehr ringhörig und relative lange laute Musik von der Pool Area (vielleicht sind wir einfach etwas alt für diese Art Unterkunft?!). Wir hatten zu viert ein Zimmer mit eigenem Badezimmer. Preise Leistung stimmt.

Excelente lugar, solo hay un pero
La atención del personal, increíble, excepto el chico argentino del turno nocturno en recepción. Arrogante, pedante, antipático. Evitenlo y todo lo demas es perfecto
