Nicely maintained property with nice views. At sunset we were always visited by a toucan! This was a great place to stay. Pool was great to have.

Staff is great.
Josué at check in is great ! Our room had some black mold on the bathroom ceiling. But the hotel was also being repainted so I would think that will be taken care of soon.

Good location, beautiful view, poor breakfast
Mostly I would recommend this hotel. Staff is really helpful, room was relatively clean, mattress okay, good pillows. The fridge inside my room did not work but they a nice coffee machine which was not in the pics. Bathroom was clean and the balcony was lovely. The downside of my room is that you can't really close the doors of the balcony because the bed is blocking the way. You need to be quite strong to move the bed if you don't want to wake with the sunrise at 5 am. Breakfast food was edible, but not tasty. The view from the breakfast area is breathtaking and it was worth the poor feeding. It can be a bit tricky to find the hotel but it is well located if you are using Waze.

Slightly off main road - 2 minutes - giving a quiet and unhurried experience. My room had an ocean view. Avery good breakfast is included. I lucked out and the second night we had about a 30 minute rain in the evening, a perfect way to begin to drift off to sleep.
