This hotel was average. The facility is nice, the decor is hip, and the staff was great, but there were just too many other things that I felt were lacking. The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, so much so that the only restaurant that you will be eating at is the one in the hotel, and it's overpriced... More

Uncertain as to what to expect upon driving down a dirt road leading the a narrow alley, we were stunned. The hotel is beautiful, peaceful, and perfect. When we first checked in, we were greated with an amazing Piña drink and cold towels (very refreshing), the lady at the front desk "upgraded" us. We went from a Standard Junior to... More

We had a fabulous stay at this wonderful hotel. Our room was lovely with a great view of the ocean. The design of our room and the hotel in general was tasteful with lots of attention to detail.

This is a great boutique hotel. Much better to be honest than website suggests. The place is very modern and has a great vibe. Rooms were really nice with a strong shower & small balcony.

I haven't even stayed at this hotel yet and I'm already turned off. If they're not a scam or a hostel, I don't know what to think based on their incredibly poor customer service and faulty website.

We stayed here for 2 nights in December after 2 nights in the city. The place is just stunning, with tons of different types of seating to try out!

The restaurant at Karmairi is great. Mushroom soup and Cazuela de Mariscos are amazing. Ask for the catches of the day. Thai seafood rice is also a good choice. Fresh juices including "corozo" a tropical version of cranberry. Service is good, atmosphere and decor are great.
