Very nice cosy place with fantastic hosts! It's located in one of the remaining nice areas at the coast. Awesome garden, almost next to the beach, clean rooms, no complaints. This place is also perfect for people eager to do sports like running. I hope to be there next week again.

We stayed at the Inn for 4 nights. What a great experience. The room had all the amenities and was within steps to the beach. Steve was a terrific host, very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend for anyone looking for an alternative to a hotel.

We stayed at the Desoto in April 2015 and had a fantastic time. The room, available bicycles to ride along the beach, and Steve's hospitality made this a perfect stay! Being steps away from the beach was the cherry on top!

It is so great to read reviews like yours. We really enjoy knowing that you notice the small things that occur daily to make your stay memorable and carefree. The next time you get back to the Desoto, look for more herbs and even a larger garden for our guests. Thank you. Steve More

This is our second time here and we will be back again. Perfect spot only steps away from the beach. Rooms all have a kitchen and fully stocked dishes, plates and cookware. Very comfortable and outstanding service.

The DeSoto is is lovely on the outside, with flowers everywhere, and tropical birds in cages. The service is excellent, if you need anything, you only have to ask. Bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas are provided for guests' use. There is no breakfast service, but there is coffee each morning for a nominal fee, and the kitchen in our room... More

I can add nothing to the wonderful reviews below. They say it all so well. We had a wonderful stay in #6. It was immaculate, cozy, appointed in a lovely manner and just perfect. The sun poured in each morning, the breezes and rustling palm created a perfect mini-vacation. We will return and look forward to seeing Steve and Josias... More

I rarely write reviews but here goes. I recently had a two night stay at the Desoto Inn. Such a great spot. Made to order for a recharging weekend stay. Clean and well thought out lodging with an owner that meets you where you are with his level of personal involvement. What a relief. Totally available if wanted/needed and very... More

We arrived at The Desoto Inns, and my husband and I were both mesmerised at how lovely and quirky and gorgeous the rooms were, so clean and fresh, home from home but with that holiday feel.

My husband and I checked into the Desoto Inn. I was in town for the Oprah Life you Want weekend. So I needed to hurry and shower before the event. Our room was not ready at 2:55pm.
