Hotel Leyenda, Puerto Carrillo
Romantic getaway near a beautiful beach
The hotel and it's grounds are beautiful! It's far enough from Playa Carrillo to be away from the commercial stuff, but a five minute drive to the beach. The people are very friendly and there is a nice open-air restaurant at the hotel overlooking the gardens where they serve the included breakfast and it's open for lunch and dinner. There's also a very good Argentinian steak house a couple minutes drive from there. The hotel has a shuttle service to take you to the beach and provides lounge chairs there. Playa Carrillo has lots of shady parking and no commercialism; just miles of beautiful beach. Hotel Leyenda is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway. Also in the hills, so a little cooler than around Samara - a nice thing for the middle of March when we were there.

4-Star Italian food every night!
There is an hourly shuttle to the closest beach, Playa Carrillo. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The hotel has it's own restroom and beach chairs on the beach.

Tropical garden oasis with great food
The staff were all super friendly, the food at the restaurant is worth the drive out of town. It had a resort vibe and super chill. Nice touch with a welcome passion fruit smoothie in a champagne flute! The hotel provides much needed baños at the beach (portable clean flush toilets for hotel guests only) and beach chairs. It's also very close to a secret surf spot in the opposite direction. The beds and pillows were clean but tiered. The room was clean and huge and private (could not hear anything through the walls. This place would be great for families and not for young party people! Have the sea bass! Or the filet mignon! Or the four cheese penne! Yummmmmm
