We had a birding group of 10 who stayed 4 nights in November. The location on the coast is beautiful, although there is no access to the beach. The property is being remodeled, but they were able to accommodate us fairly well. Unfortunately, despite being located near the center of the best birding area and having hosted groups before, it...

Our (2 doubles & 1 single) room in the top block with en-suite (shower) bathroom, air-con, fan and cable TV was comfortable and could sleep 5, even though there were only 3 of us. As we were only staying one night (US$104 incl. breakfast & taxes) and would be out for most of the day, it was adequate. There were... More

We stayed 2different nights on a week long trip around the southwest. It was a great location very centrally placed. We saw all the sights and loved this hotel. It was very reasonably priced compared to where we stayed in Paraiso and the staff just made the experience wonderful. They were so helpful and the food was great. They even... More

El Quemaito is a beautiful, calm, safe spot to take in gorgeous views of pebble beaches, cliffs and the endless roar of the waves. We came with a group of 20 people, and were attended too kindly by the wonderful staff. The food was delicious and the dining-room big enough to suit our needs. The rooms varied in shapes, sizes...

The grounds of the El Quemaito are stunning- a terraced property with beautiful gardens, a refreshing pool, and views dominated by the Caribbean Ocean. Gaetano, the proprietor, recently took the place over and he is still working out some of the kinks and figuring things out- upgrades, modernization, aesthetic improvements. Having said that, we had a lovely time and it... More

It's located in a spectacular spot, overlooking the ocean. The grounds are beautiful surrounded by tropical plants. It has a great swimming pool. The rooms lack charm. Internet service goes on and off as well as electricity in the evening. The service is slow and unprofessional. The restaurant was overpriced and the portions were minimal. El Quemaito is a hotel...

The two of us and our guide spent two nights here during a birdwatching tour, and had one dinner at the hotel. (The other in town at the seaside "Brisas del Caraibe.") The rooms we saw were large and quite comfortable; the restaurant is styled in European rustic-simple decor (the first owner was Swiss and the property is owned by... More

Stayed for 3 nights, very nice. Excellent service. Not a huge menu but food was very good. More than helpful with information on trips and sights to see in the area. Pool was very nice to cool off in at the end of the day. Would stay here again.

So far I have had the chance to go there for work reasons only. Yet I love this place. You can come here and forget about the world. The staff is wonderful, the food is awesome.
