Very nice and cosy small place owned by a fantastic couple. Not only did we enjoy a great night sleep, but we also had the pleasure to meet two great individuals in Kevan and Marcella. We stayed there just one night as we had to catch our flight but we regretted we could not stay longer. The rooms are beautiful,... More

Palapa Place is a place not to be missed! Absolutely perfect in every sense of the word. Quite, peaceful, beautifully and stylishly decorated with the most amazing views! Stay in the loft!! The hosts, Marcella and Kevan are such gracious hosts! I will return again and again! My hide-away and home away from home!

I stayed in the lovely guest suite, the place was stunning, listening to the waves on the beach as I fell asleep.

Thank you so much for your review, much appreciated. I know I had responded to you at the time privately, just realized though, that I should respond in the public forum. Kevan and I trust you are well? Best regards Kevan and Marcella More

Marcella is a great host who is always friendly and helpful, that alone makes Palapa Place a place to visit again. The units are cosy and modern with beautiful views of the sea, and a short walk to the beach. We definately want to visit again.
