This is a GREAT place to relax! Totally charming... Not a resort, not really a hotel,
The only larger building is he restaurant, Then there are about 30 Bungalows of different sizes, some facing the ocean all with thatched roofs. I had Bungalow #3, one of 3 larger ones on the south end with the ocean view, which had a king-size bed and a double one, plus a bathroom & small closet.
The whole place is on beautiful white sand, with stone lined paths. The staff is totally wonderful! Griselda is an excellent house-keeper who makes incredible towel sculptures, a different one each day! The restaurant is very good, with lots of pasta dishes, pizzas & seafood.(It's owned by an Italian couple)
I stayed longer than I planned! The only problem for me is that it's really windy in the winter
(I went late January) and the surf is too strong for me. (I'm 64 & partly handicapped)
It's a Lonely Planet place, so I got to meet a lot of other single travelers.
They also have a number of day-trips available and have snorkling gear to rent.
i highly recommend this place for a terrific getaway!
