If you are looking for a really fun place to hang out for a few days and really don't feel that sitting in your room and looking at the georgous details of the decor should be the primary goal of your trip, then please, come to Clarita's! The hotel is small but very cozy. We pre-booked 4 nights and ended up staying for 8! Everyone there was AMAZING from the owners/managers to the waitstaff! The beach is really nice and the town is within walking distance. The rooms are cozy and clean. The beds are comfy and the rooms with A/C are cold! Fridge in the room so you can stash some beer, and hanging at the pool is a must! The chicken wings were the guys favorite food while there (because they are better than anything we have ever had at home) and I enjoyed the steak with mashed potatoes and some really yummy cheese sauce with jalapenos. The coffee starts when the workers arrive, and they are very pleasant and always friendly. breakfast is good and can feed two! I miss it already and hope that we will return on a future trip. Surf is very close by and the waves were great for the guys on High Tide. (you will need a car if you plan to get to Playa Hermosa) All and all, this was one of the best places we have stayed during our travel. It was exactly what the doctor ordered! The bar/rest in the front has events planned for different nights, some nights get really crazy! So if you are a stiff, please, don't go to Clarita's...it is not the place for you! But if you love adventure, want to experience the local scene, enjoy cutting loose, then go! You will not regret it!
