Rooms are clean with television, private bathroom and kitchen (BBQ too). Grounds are well groomed with a lovely pool and you'll see lots of iguanas and birds. 2 min walk to beaches, bars, sodas and...

Very clean and simple hotel. They have a variety of accommodations for everyone at a very reasonable price. A very nice hotel tucked in off the main strip. A quick wall to the beach and the strip. Love a place that locals trust and enjoy!

We rolled a little late and checked out a few hotels but all were beyond our price range. Started looking at a few cabinas when we found this spot. Very nice rooms and beautiful garden.

Next to town centre, next to the beach. Stunning setting. Friendly manager who helped our family to a nice discount. And quiet: even if there is a pool party going its is ended at 10 pm. Nature: macaws are flying over and iguana's are in the tree by the pool!
