Beautiful log cabin type accommodations with a full kitchen, small porch and clean. The staff were very helpful and some of them could speak English. Easy walk to restaurants and grocery store. Grills available. Beautiful pool in the shape of a whales tail with a fun slide that even my 16 year old enjoyed. No bugs. Close to the beach.... More

It's even got a very fun slide. From the water we were watching several green iguanas (as many as three at the same time) in the tree right next to... More
