We had a wonderful time. It is a unique neighborhood, with restaurants within walking distance. The staff was super helpful. We witnessed an older couple, and the husband had lost a crown on a molar.On a Saturday. The staff not only helped to locate a dentist, but walked the couple to the office, and helped interpret. That is above and... More

This hotel has the perfect location, right on a gentle beach in a safe neighborhood with restaurants just two blocks away. The beach has a buoy for swimmers to swim out to, and there is a pool two levels up with an excellent water slide. Near the pool are hammocks with a view. Our room was clean and spacious with...

We arrived early before our room was ready so the staff offered to watch our luggage while we checked out the town. Room: We booked the Jacuzzi suite with a view... More

We moved here from Irma, after a bad night there, and the staff made room for us and even moved some others around so we could stay in one room. What a great place! The food is average, but the hotel really makes its guests feel special. Thanks Aura Del Mar.

We have stayed here for several years and will continue to do so in the future. The staff is outstanding and the location is excellent. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Nice restuarant or there are dozens of others within a short walking distance. Staff is always helpful with suggestions and answering questions. We stay to get away from the cold... More

We stayed the week of Feb 8-15. Check-in was smooth and quick. Carlos and Jacqueline will take good care of you and answer any questions you may have about sites, tours, and places to eat. Don't miss the coconut shrimp at Daniel's and the molecajete at Bandito's. Daniels is right on the beach just before you get to the basketball... More

Another delightful stay at this boutique hotel. Staff always greets with a smile and so very attentive. We were traveling with our son, daughter in law and 16 month old grand daughter and we were welcomed every where and felt very much at home. Yes there are stairs but wow the views are so worth it.

we stayed here just last week and were very impressed with this hotel. Yes we did have 112 steps from the beach to our room but we knew that going in. Our room was just as we thought it was going to be and even passed our expectations. The only drawback would be that our neighbors next door could look... More

We love this place. When you come to the entrance you may think oh,oh. Then you walk into the lobby and see the most beautiful view. The hotel is intimate and personal. Carlos will help you with tours, recommendations car rentals. The rooms are large, clean and all have a great ocean view. It's walking distance to tons of restaurants... More
