Good location, clean and comfortable rooms. The food is fantastic! But the number one reason I liked the place was the extremely welcoming and helpful host: Max. He is really interested in your visiting experience. I would definitely go back.

On the recommendation of other "Peace Corps" volunteers (PCV), we stayed here with our daughter, a PCV serving in a different region of the country. It was an ideal setting for our rendezvous... beautiful, relaxing with a unique blend of... More

La Tulipe Noire (The Black Tulip) is one of the most amazing places we've ever visited. We were treated like kings from the moment we arrived, tired and dusty from a long day of travel.
