The hotel is located on a hill just on the edge of the small town, only a short walk from the beach. Being on the hill is a real bonus; the views are stunning and gives a refreshing breeze.

“All of the rooms overlook the ocean, might get a slightly better view from the top floor of the apartments, but it was nice to be on the ground floor because we could walk down to the pool from our room.”
  • Deck off our room, could walk down to the pool from here.
  • View of the howler monkeys from our balcony.
