La Joya is a charming, beautiful, quiet place to stay. We really couldn't have been happier. From the front, it doesn't look like much and is situated back from the main road, but the inside is gorgeous! We stayed in room number 1 at the top of the property.The hotel is situated on many levels with stairs in between, so if you are not comfortable with lots of stairs this place is not for you. I liked the way it was set up...felt like we had our own little area. The hotel is primarily run by a husband/wife team. They have a door bell at the bottom of the stairs into their primary residence (they live on the property), if you need anything. They were always quick to respond and friendly. We only had minor issues communicating - I am working on my Spanish. :-) They have a community kitchen for the guests that is really pretty complete and a large dining room with tables and chairs. The hotel offers a continental breakfast of toast, juice and coffee delivered to your balcony. We would briefly leave our rooms and come home to a cleaned room with fresh towels. The balconies are huge (some appear to share with the neighbor), ours was private. They have a hammock, 2 Adirondack chairs and a table with chairs. All balconies have great panoramic views of the ocean. The pool is on the small side - but we were really the only people in it, so it was perfect. It also has a stunning view of the ocean (infinity edge) and a shallow part for just lounging. There is green grass everywhere and plenty of lounge chairs. The beach is smaller, but very private (enclosed by several large rocks). It is shallow, but grassy with some sea urchins. Bring water shoes or flippers. :-) We saw all kinds of cool fish using our own snorkel gear (they sell it at the hotel along with biodegradable sunscreen, but for a price). They also have a kayak and life jackets to use for free. We had lots of fun with these!
