“Lovely Hotel with great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very comfortable family owned Hotel with a panoramic view from the rooftop, sunsrise and sunset views are not to be missed. Its a cosy place and also has great breakfasts with Chef Al.
The beach is just around the corner but there is also a pool if the waves are too choppy.
Its a very laid back village.

My friend and I had a great stay at Hotel Delfin. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the pool is really nice and staff are all super friendly, helpful and lovely.
The beach is also really close, a 5 minute walk, and there are lots of restaurants and places to eat nearby. There is also the restaurant 'Jandos' which has recently opened at the hotel, and has really tasty and reasonably priced food. The menu has great choices of eggs and muffins, and also a very friendly owner. The hotel has a laid back atmosphere, as well as everything to keep you comfortable. All in all, my stay was great and Barra de Navidad is such a beautiful little town. I definitely recommend it, as well as Hotel Delfin for a relaxing holiday spot!

Room Tip: If you don't mind the stairs, the rooms on the 4th floor have the nicest views

My brother and I moved into this Hotel on the recomendation of a couple we met in a restaurant. They had been coming for years and highly recommended it. We were checked in by the wife of the owner, Klaudia. She and Stefin speak beautiful English, German , and of course Spanish. The hotel is sparkling clean with a pool in the courtyard that is HEATED by solar panels and a real joy to cool off in. Many rooms have shady patios and comfortable chairs. I loved sitting out with my computer at night listening to other guests speaking many languages. The hotel has a great international feeling. The help is friendly and very efficient. They have just opened a onsite restaurant for breakfasts and perhaps lunches in the future. We tried it today and were impressed with the great coffee and eggs benedict. Very first class food. Moderately priced for all the great extras. Loved it.

Room Tip: Ask to see all the choices and look for a room in this hotel that does not get direct morning sun. A...

Hotel defin is a small family owned hotel located in 'downtown' barra. The town as well as the hotel gives you a feeling that time has stood still: we were looking for a inexpensive but very clean hotel, friendly staff, tasty breakfasts and a safe environment, and that is exactly what we got. Even though i do not understand why someone who travels in this region wants this, but: if you expect tv, a/c, huge bar, ergonomic pillows etc. then this is not the right place. It is a simple but charming little hotel, for an amazing price.

Love this place! It's a little oasis in an oasis. Everything is extremely clean. The pool so peaceful, with big trees surrounding it and beautiful flower bushes, and a little dolphin fountain. It is owned and run by a local, eco-conscious family, which is awesome. They have done a lot to make this place 'green' like putting in solar heating for the water.

Barra itself is a great place to visit. There are lots of good places to eat, swimming, surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking. It's a beautiful place.

We stopped at the hotel because we had seen it listed in one of our travel books--it was clean, bright and very affordable--the pool was big, clean and warm! The owner has been pumping cash back into the place with solar heating, upgrading windows and beautiful landscaping. The rooms are very Mexican-no phone, TV or AC--but it did have ceiling fans, the bed was great, nice warm blankets avialable if needed and fresh drinking water just down the hall.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top two floors have been remodeled and have great views.
