    Very good management service located on property. Helpful with getting Covid test. Beautiful kept property and quiet. Room is a little tired and needs furniture refresh but adequate for the price. Will go back again!

    The owner and staff were amazing. We came at the beginning of a rain storm and the owner went out of his way to buy us umbrellas. They also do laundry for a fair fee, wifi available, clean pool, short walking distance for a number of restaurants. The restaurant at the hotel is also amazing and one if the best in the area. Highly recommend eating a meal or two there. 110 plugs, tv in spanish, frig, and a/c in the room. Filtered water available for guests.

    We had an amazing time at this property. Richard and the staff made us feel like family. We only had minor issues with the toilet clogging; I'd recommend to not put toilet paper in the bowl. Other than that, we had a great stay.

    While not right on beach it's a close walk, and convenient location. Boutiqe experience with friendly, helpful staff and management. Well maintained and very clean. A little quiet oasis off the main area.

    A Weekend in Paradise!

    We read the wonderful reviews abut this hotel and our expectations were high! Hotel Arco Iris DID NOT disappoint. We were greeted by Richard, the owner, who personally led us to our little bungalow. There was a hammock and lush greenery for each bungalow. There were Iguanas soaking up the sun by day and howler monkeys growling at dusk. The rooms were perfectly appointed and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The restaurant "Seasons" was small and situated right on the pool deck which created a picturesque atmosphere. The food was delicious! We even went just for dessert and coffee one night. It was only a very short walk to the beach (best sunsets!) shops and restaurants yet we felt secluded and removed form the crowd. Covid safety practices were present everywhere too.

    We loved our stay at Hotel Arco Iris. The rooms were clean, the staff was helpful, friendly and the restaurant on the property was great too. We liked that it was a boutique hotel with not many rooms because our stay was quiet and relaxing. Only a quick walk to the beach and off the main street. We would definitely come back and stay again!
