It is a good hotel option for the area, as there are not many options on the coast. The view from our room was spectacular and staff is very friendly. Rooms seem to be remodeled but the finish isn't great. There is a simple breakfast included. This is a hotel for not very picky people. We did enjoy it though.

Very nice place. Really quiet, peaceful and with an awesome view. The beach El Quemaito is really close and is very calm, perfect for kids. Although there is no sand, but small rocks, it's a safe and warm nice beach.

From time of arrival to leaving El Quemaito, Gigi, the owner, made us feel very much like we were the most important people on earth. Somehow he found out that we were vegeterians, so he prepared this amazing 7 course vegetarian meal for us. We ate this dinner at his beautiful poolside area to very relaxing music.

a very good place, with a spectacular ocean view, excellent to spend a romantic moment with your partner looking at the sunset/sunrise from a confortable gazebo. The rooms are very confortable and new. All the hotel looks great. You should try Gigi's "Pasta vegetariana": it's a perfect example of italian food.
