The hotel was located in a very nice magical setting. The beach is across the hotel so you sleep and wake up with the sound of the waves. You also wake up to the sound of a rooster that is around there. Everything is very walkable however there are 2 bars near the hotel so it tends to get a bit loud. Ask for a room in the back either #12 or #10 less vibrations from the music lol Also don't forget your mosquito repellent I was eaten alive :)

What a treat to stay here for two nights, and I wish it was more. With no air and coming from snow country, I was surprised how comfortable the netted bed with ceiling fan within the “tent” would be. Beautiful room, grounds, and just 20 yards from a beach tiki bar/outdoor restaurant. The best stop on my 26 day, 10 hotel trip!

An almost perfect stay.
I was disappointed with the lack of WiFi and the fact the pool was never cleaned and open during our stay. Office staff seemed unconcerned that these two advertised amenities were issues. It was more that they hear the complaints all the time and are numb to the questions. With that said the cabanas and property are clean and maintenance/housekeeping staff are wonderful. Perfect central location right on the beach. No AC, but double fans (inside and outside mosquito netting surrounding bed) make a comfortable stay. All you need is a tooth brush, flip flops, cash for food and liquor, and a bathing suit… and that’s optional!
