The hotel was nice however not kept up like it should be. It would have been a good experience if It would have been more kept up. It felt like being in the Far East in the seventies.

The “Secret Garden” a magical experience.
Magical little jewel amongst a backdrop of the ocean and a quaint natural and healthy minded community. “Secret Garden” and the “Cafe Secret”; walk in and experience the feeling of being transported to another place of romance, comfort and Beauty. Fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves in a large cozy comfortable bed. Awaken to the delightful and unique decore, step out on the private veranda and enjoy a cup of imported Peruvian coffee. The cafe is steps away from our room and the aromas coming from the kitchen makes you want to order everything on the menu. Still can not believe, with our stay, we got free breakfast every morning at the amazing little Peruvian cafe. All home made and specially created Peruvian delights. Friendly staff. We can’t wait to come back to this wonderful and special place. Enjoy!!!

Charming small (only 5 rooms) hotel set back from the street behind a Peruvian restaurant (which is where the full breakfast is provided). Very nice place for a couple.

Great Getaway
Wonderful weekend getaway spot to celebrate our anniversary! As soon as we opened our door we were hit by the most amazing ocean breeze. Everything was clean and fresh and we loved the little details and personal touches in the room from the live potted orchid to the notebook full of notes from guests dating back to 2008. Plenty of towels, bath robes in the closet, and extremely comfortable bed and pillows. There was a little shared kitchenette/bar space outside the three rooms that was stocked with free water bottles and ice. Deep jetted bath and gas fireplace/stove made for a relaxing stay paired with ocean views from the balcony. Room service available, but no 24hr staff or desk available at your beck and call. Check in and out are at the sister hotel Le Artistes Inn just down the road. Many options for food and drink within a two block radius as well as walkable shopping and beach. Worth venturing out for happy hour! Overall, a great stay. We will definitely be returning!
