My friends and I stayed in casita 3 for a week. This place is perfect. Peaceful, short walk to the beach, awesome staff, and a couple of cuddly kitties hanging out on the grounds. It was wonderful to come back to a small, quiet "home" at the end of the day. They provide free beach towels, chairs, and snorkel gear.... More

We had a great time at Casita 1, the best for couples spending time for honeymoon. You can relax at the hammock at anytime of the day, there is trees so you will have a lovely shadow. The staff are the best and they are very happy to give you advice about the Island. The location is great also.

We were looking for a small hotel in an intimate setting ( just 14 casitas on site) and previous... More

My wife and I have stayed here about a dozen times since the mid 90's. Quiet, out of the way, we love the immaculate oversized suites and make good use of the kitchen.
