Great hotel for the money! Very friendly people, beautiful clean rooms with a small living area with kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Much better than the high rises. Be sure to rent a car before you leave the airport. Also buy duty free alcohol at the airport; the bars and supermarkets are very expensive.

Property is well maintained. Nicely located across the street from the beach. Private palapos are usually easily available. Didn't like that they take the chairs off at 5pm but the chairs next door at the Ritz are available.

Seriously my favourite hotel of all time, and I've been around. It clearly beats any fancy high rise hotel period!!!! There is nothing I would change.

The boardwalk is a true oasis. It is a beautiful, secluded and cozy boutique hotel. Very clean, well maintained and up to date. It's like you have a wealthy friend who has invited you to stay at his/her coach house in a tropical garden. The grounds are immaculate. You have a private deck. The pool is just a few steps...

What a great place to stay!

We had a great time. Room was what we needed, staff was unimposing and friendly. Close to the beach and restaurants. Will stay there again. Pool is a nice touch as well. Kept clean and neat. And it will be bigger next time we visit.
