My son, my dog and I stayed in this beautiful spot for a week. The gorgeous gardens are full of birds, there is a great pool for relaxing, lots of hammocks and it is just steps to an almost deserted stretch of beach that has the best sunsets! Gaby made us feel at home immediately and she was very helpful...

Juan Carlos, the owner, is one heck of a chef. It is wonderful to be in Playas, a small fishing village, and be able to experience food that is out of this world. The grounds and rooms are well maintained and offer a quaint, relaxing feel. This establishment is located away from downtown Playas and gives one the ability to...

The place is beautiful, full of buganvillas, plants and flowers. It is so close to the ocean that is very easy and safe to take a long stroll down the beach, which I strongly recommend. The bungalows are so cute! They have hammock on the porches, and you can see a lot of birds right from your porch. The owners,...

My family stayed at el Jardin for 6 weeks. It was one of the most relaxed times I have ever had. everything from the beach to the food was awesome. We enjoyed swims in the ocean, the pool and watching fisherman along the beach. It was a superb experience. Marie and Juan Carlos made our visit special and very pleasant.
