I stayed for 3 nights at SoulShine, I would have stayed longer if I could’ve. Yael and family are the perfect hosts. It’s like staying with family, trust me, they really cared about my enjoyment and comfort. Food is super yummy, pool is perfect and the cabins were impeccably clean. Fast wifi if you’re working remote. Had a lovely cat join me every morning for yoga 😽, never got her name. A short walk to beach and restaurants. I’ll be back! Russ.

We came for few days and stayed 2 weeks because we fell in love with the place! The owners are super welcoming and generous, the pool is great, amazing location walking distance to the beach (through an amazing mangrove trail). The rooms were spacious and the pool is amazing. Above all, brunch or breakfast at their restaurant is a MUST. it’s absolutely delicious. Definitely the best place to stay in Avellanas.

I love this place. Went to breakfast the day we arrived and was welcomed with opened arms! Had a most fabulous meal (if not the best). Met Yael and Roee (the owners). Came back for a second time... even better than the first. Toured the property, absolutely beautiful. Looking forward to spending much more time at this beautiful hotel and restaurant! Thank you .... I love your “state of mind”.

The hotel is breathtaking! Yael and Roy are amazing people that do everything in their power to make you feel at home and they manage! The rooms are beautiful and spacious with good internet (which is rare) a great pool and the most delicious food you will find in all of Avellans. The beach is also breathtaking!
