Good surf hotel with a great food and bar. I think most people in the area eat here because the food is all around great and well priced. Theres a few different room types/sizes but all are pretty decent and you can't go wrong.. small pools but they serve their purpose well.

This is a quaint, quiet and beautiful place with easy, quick access to a peaceful beach. The staff is amazing and the restaurant is fabulous. We loved all the fresh fish dishes and fruit smoothies. Really appreciated everyone and everything the employees did to make my stay comfortable. Reynaldo and Stephanie in the restaurant were top notch, delivering excellent service. Nubia, Javier and Ellion at the desk made everything perfect for us. We had minor issues in the room, but received immediate assistance with fixing anything. I also found Ana extremely kind and helpful. We will visit again definitely.
