We did struggle to find this oasis and most travellers would be put off by the surrounding areas which In a few years will undoubtably have changed for the better. It was our first stay on our trip up the coast and we spent two nights here The only negative was the local dogs who can create at night but... More

If you want a retreat style getaway, this is an ideal location. Lots of attention is put on the garden. It's beautifully done and very pleasant to the eyes. Added attractions are the 4 beautiful parrots and the love birds. And let's not forget the 3 small well behaved dogs (Luna, Saphie and the boss Bruno). There is also a... More

Gorgeous grounds, the hostess is an interior decorator and the rooms are beautifully done in an international style. The spot is located way out of town, you will need lots of taxi rides for lunch, dinner, shopping. Make sure you establish meal and transportation prices ahead of time : we had a lovely lunch the second day which was charged... More

This is our second stay in Salinas in this breathtaking hotel. The owner is a lovely lady who goes out of her way to help you with all your needs. The rooms are decorated beautifully and the ocean views spectacular. Breakfast is served and other meals can be ordered and picked up for you. Otherwise take a $2 taxi ride... More

If you want the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature, this is the place. Romance can be feel in the air. Great views. Enjoy breakfast with ocean view is priceless. Great service, owners of the B&B treat you like family.

Spent 3 days there October 2012. The pictures you see online are exactly what it looks like. Is is funny because outside of this resort it is a dirt field and you walk throught the doors of Playa Canela it is a magnificent oasis. Beautiful place, relaxing and the rooms are beautiful and clean. We were served our meals there... More

Everything in the room was new and made our stay more comfortable. The view from the hotel was breathtaking. Seeing beautiful birds of... More

A terrific little B&B right on the beach and just a couple of kilometers from the Salinas Malecon. It consists of a main house where the owner lives and where her personal guests stay. The main house is next to a 3 story building that houses the remaining guests. There are currently 2 large apartment/suites (a 3rd one is being... More
