We were greeted with a bottle of champagne for our anniversary which was nice and unexpected. Had a little trouble getting the safe to work, but the staff quickly resolved the issue. There... More

We took the public bus there and back, which was fine by us. The hotel is small scale development with bungalows and one complex with rooms that have balconies (however they are all only 1 storey or floor high) The location is well chosen. The beach is long, wide when at low tide, full of nature, but please beware of... More

Can't understand how this place could be #2. Definitely tops in the Playa Esterillos area! Gorgeous hotel and friendly staff. Much better deal than the local competition.

I was in this hotel 15-24 of May, 2009. Plus: nice ocean front bungalow, fantastic long and very clean beach, friendly and polite staff. Minus: very poor and hangry breakfast (no choice, only one position and one juce). No transportation from this hotel to another place of interest. If you have a car - no problem. But I had a...
