I got a massage right at my comfy beach chair under the umbrella. Two beaches one regular and one nude. Lots of food kiosks and cheap drinks. $15 for chair and umbrella. Warm water with lush deep white sand.

Early on Thursday morning, I ran into Katy, the assistant director of La Playa. Despite the busy morning, she eagerly showed me an available room which had recently been updated. The room was fresh, clean, and bright. It...

They are currently undergoing refurbishing and we were the first ones to stay in a room completely renovated.

Nice quiet spot on Orient Beach between two busy clubs (Waikiki and Bikini). Nice menu with a good selection of tapas and a delicious club sandwich. Great spot to lounge, lunch and people-watch. Chairs and umbrellas available as well as water sports.
