I loved my stay here. It's not a 5 star property, but it was definitely comfortable, clean, and perfect for what I needed. It has more of a boutique hotel feel which I liked since it never felt overly crowded. I had a standard room, which had a king bed and a balcony. It was big and pretty comfortable. But... More

Perfect location. Great semi-private beach access. Nice rooms. Great views. Excellent breakfast. And friendly service. The pool area is a peaceful, tropical oasis with friendly and entertaining howler monkeys, iguanas and birds. Just what I needed.

The hotel was very nice. The view from our balcony was beautiful. The rooms were clean and updated and the service was very friendly. They had a nice pool and a good full breakfast. They even had a little spa where we got a nice massage! My only word of caution would be that they claim to have "private beach... More

We initially booked a standard room, but after check-in, the room was too small for a five day stay. For a few days, it would have worked, but not for five days. We upgraded to a deluxe room with a jacuzzi tub and magnificent ocean view. Well worth the upgrade. As described in other reviews, the wi-fi was spotty in... More

Stayed for 3 nights in late March. We were in a second-floor room in a building separate from the main building. The view from the balcony captured a slice of the ocean over the tops of palm trees and other lush greenery. The room was bigger than a typical hotel room, and the bathroom was huge. There was air conditioning... More

We stayed just 1 night on our journey through the country as part of the west coast, nice rooms, AC, no insects, nice view from the balcony, wifi almost only in public areas, not in all rooms, the food is too expensive for the quality but ok, the hotel has a private way to the main street on the beach,...

We had an emergency back home -- our 1 year old was in the ER with a life threatening condition. We had to return to the United States. We cancelled our reservation on a tuesday, about 36 hours before our check in. Because the hotel has a 48-hour cancelation policy, they refunded NONE of our stay. Even the days that... More

Unfortunately things started off bad with a front desk person that was more interested in "You Tube" than our reservation. He eventually took our reservation upstairs (owner?), and he checked us in. A couple of hours later, I asked this front desk person about the location of a restaurant (#1 on T/A , Black Stallion). He looked up from his... More

I stayed here for a week with 4 other friends. After reading some of the reviews here, we almost switched our reservations and we were so glad we decided to stay. The room was huge and exceeded our expectations. The location was up the hill so it was pretty quiet (we were probably the loudest ones there). The pool area... More

The hotel and attached restaurant were great my wife and I were surprised there were any negative reviews.The restaurant staff was very personable and the food was fresh and well prepared,and the menu varied enough so that we ate there almost every night.For "fancy"food pretty inexpensive. The hotel is located up the hill about a block from the beach and... More
