“Great place, great value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We've now stayed at Punta Esmerelda a handful of times in the last few years. It's quietly away from the main strip and surf scene, but close enough to easy walk to the beach and access either end of Playa Zicatela if you wish. The only noise is dogs and roosters, which is to be expected in the area. You are close to the local culture in a neighbourhood that appears to be growing and most of the locals are quite friendly. There are a number of corner stores within a few minutes' walk if you need a few items and there are always taxis in the area. Staff members are courteous and professional, always willing to help northerners practice their Spanish. For what we need and expect, it's a great deal to stay here for a week or two every year. Gracias.

Room Tip: The top floor suites have the best sunset views.
