Ericka provides excellent hospitality! Unique original paintings by Ericka's grandfather years ago. Room was comfortable and loved the pool! Quiet environment and common-use kitchen and sitting area inviting.

We have been staying with Erika over the past 5 years on and off. From the 1st visit she was lovely and gracious - always willing to help with any travel details, local spots to visit, La Cruz town info, etc.....She has the most beautiful paintings in that hotel by Artist Lester Bounds, who was her grandmother's husband there in...

This was a lovely quiet beautiful place to stay. However, it was VERY windy in February. Also it said that there was a kitchen, which there was, but we were only able to use the microwave to cook in. This was a disappointment.

We got there at around 16:30, on the 29th of December, and stayed a couple of nights. Our first impression was of an old house turned into a hostel, but it was a little more private than a hostel. We got to the room, and it was ok, but when we got to the backyard: Amazing! The sunset was absolutely...

Have been here many times. Nice, clean, safe, caring, but the VIEW is beyond postcard! A clean pool (with space for tanning-rare in Central America) is on the bluff over the plains and bay below. Thanks to Erika and Hellen for all.

Can't really add too much to the great reviews. We stopped in here for a couple of nights at the end of 2015 when the Cuban Migrants were held up at the border. From the second floor balcony we observed many different birds and even a snake down on the cliff below the hotel. Other creatures like hanging out on...

Nice and clean; sits on a cliff top with a great view of the Bahia Salinas. The guests can use the kitchen, including a fridge, which is a nice touch in this climate. Another fridge s on the 2nd floor, next to the guest rooms. They've got an outdoor pool too, and the WiFi signal is good.

Ericka is an excellent hostess, she's happy to serve and very helpful. It's 35 minutes away from Playa Rajada, but close to cheap sodas and restaurants. Beautiful view, very clean and charming, has a pool nice corridors and a small kitchen, each story has its own little fridge Definitely my place in La Cruz.

This hotel is a very quiet place to stay. It does not have a restaurant, but it does provide a full kitchen (common use) and eating area. The rooms are spacious and the rooms upstairs and in the back have the view of the sea. There is a common balcony in the back that is open to all guests. (If...

This is definitely the best place to stay in La Cruz. The pool is lovely although we mostly laid next to it since it was a bit chilly to swim when we arrived. Amalia, the owner, is absolutely lovely and always available for anything that one might need. The house is decorated in paintings that were done by Amalia's husband....
