The place is a hidden and secret place where you can relax on the jacuzzi, or listeaning to the waves. You can plan and get a tour to watch the turtles at night. It's a great place to stay with your love one.

We ate at the Hotel restaurant, and were served wonderful meals, such as homemade apple pie, and freshly caught yellowfin tuna. One night, a sloth slumbered through by, in...

Great little hotel, right on the beach. Good restaurant too that serves everything from local food to burgers. Turtle tour was tough to stay up for, but well worth it. If you plan to stay more than a day or two, inquire about the little apartments up the hill.

We went back to stay with them again. It is a very welcoming, friendly place with helpful staff and an incredible beach on the doorstep. The furniture is a little old, and some of the room layouts are a little strange, but it is clean and very comfortable. Great hammocks on the porch, nice pool for quick dips, very good...

A trip to Central America should be your first concern but this place was amazing. Great staff, very helpful and all of them spoke english.

We stayed at the Faro Up apartment, and during the day I was surfing and hanging around the pool of the Hotel ... The food and the people was wonderful. This place is just fantastic for a surfer with a gf that is not surfing ... If you want waves, good food, astonishing scenery, nature (monkeys, crocodiles, birds, etc) ......
