Stayed here for 2 nights with a friend. Room was airy and spacious with a balcony and stunning ocean view. Hotel staff were so friendly and helpful. Juices, breakfast, and meals were so fresh and delicious. They offer yoga for a small fee twice a day, but the yoga is sooo basic and slow paced, and while the yoga platform... More

What a mistake.... service terrible, room without any charm, we been charged two time when we've booked and it took us one month to get the money back... Perhaps, it's just not our taste but we really not enjoyed our stay there. Bottom line, if you don't look for a tourist place, just walk away.,,,

Stayed in the Oceano Eco which is the annexe building. It is close so the facilities of the main hotel which can be used. The rooms are large with quirky interiors great sea views from the balcony. The fantastic large swimming pool is a big plus for the annexe though there is limited shade. The location of both hotels is... More

There are two primary things going for this hotel - its proximity to the beach (the quiet south beach) and the quality of the food - which was some of the best we had on our tours. Otherwise this is an average place, with average to poor service and located in a very poor area (step outside the gates and... More

So refreshing to find a tranquil and natural Hotel. No Plasma T.V's or frills. Just the sound of the ocean, birds and a pretty tropical garden. My suite was spotless. Clean sheets and towels everyday and the floor mopped too. The staff were so polite and helpful. The chef even cooked a special 3 course meal for myself and two... More
