Just got back after staying 10 nights here and we were quite pleasantly surprised with the quality and especially the cleanliness of the place. We stayed in room 18 on the second floor which has partial views of the sea and benefits from a sea breeze although we did pay extra for the air con which I would recommend as... More

We stayed at the 1 bd apt, there was 5 of us, so the placed a queen bed in the living room/kitchen area. After staying at hostels for the entire week, the hot water was very welcoming. The place has a lot of charm and amenities. The staff cleaned our room every day and gave us fresh towels and the... More

The room was clean and the staff were friendly. They have WiFi in the room that worked most of the time. It was safe and on the main street in West end. They have a restaurant that is a bit pricey but the food tastes good. No complaints.

Nice, charm and cozy posada right next to beach in half moon bay. Perfect located next to the beach in the middle of the Jungle. Perfect for relaxing and reading break. Staff friendly and helpful. Old rooms but preserved actually gives you a more local experience away from luxury.

If you are looking for a small place to stay with a local feel, this is your place. If you are looking for 5 stars, pools, room service, and 1200 thread count sheets -- it isn't! Our rooms was clean, we opted for no AC and in January with fans on and windows open, no problems. They are screens on... More

Arco Iris is nicely located down one of the beach across from the popular Sundowners Beach Bar. We had a room on the second floor with two queen beds and one master bedroom and bathroom. There was plenty of space, nice, high ceilings and plenty of fans to keep air circulating. Windows are completely covered with fly-screen to further keep... More

Arco Iris offers it all - a great location right in the action at an unbeatable price. At $42 a night per couple for a basic room you really can't find anything better. We stayed here over Christmas-NYE this past December. The posada offers lounge chairs at no cost to their guests on the beach infront of the hotel. This... More

We stayed here multiple times while completing my house in West Bay. The location is great, the staff knows you by name and the food is some of the best in West End. They have two other locations that are newer, but this one has the best location. I dropped a satchel containing quite a bit of cash and it... More

Perfect location, Good price, Rooms dated & bed was awful & worn out, Nice staff, Will look for a nicer room next time, A TV would be nice.i did like the "rain forest" look and the beach, however small, is nice. The food in the restaurant is not great & rather pricy. The small local guy cooking on the street... More

Can't beat the location if you are staying on west end. Steps from the beach and they provide beach chairs and kayaks free of charge for their guests. Dive shops and bars are steps away and West Bay (a stunning beach) is only a 5 minute and $3 boat ride away. We stayed in the cheapest rooms with a/c. A... More
