Loved it!!
We stayed here with our 2 adult children and had a fantastic time. The view is amazing, at low tide you can walk for ever on a very quite beach. The hotel lights up the ocean Rocks and it is so beautiful at night. There is a great palapa down at the water that was great for us to play cards at night. The food was delish!! What a beautiful dinner sunset! Amazing!! My morning Bloody Mary was great as well. The room coffee not so good but the coffee from the bar/resturant is Amazing. The pool area was small but in the right spot on the property. The room was so clean and comfortable. A very Costa Rican feel! Location was perfect for us. In between 2 great towns. Highly recommend

Lovely location but a bit out of the way if you don't have a car. Accommodation is a tiny but tired but the location and staff more than make up for that.

El restaurante tiene vistas muy bonitas y hay una cabina que tiene una terraza con vista directa al mar. Las cabinas son cómodas y equipadas con algunos artículos. El personal da muy buen servicio al cliente.
