I recently stayed here for a little over one week and found it to be very relaxing and accommodating. I loved the pool with its resident iguanas and the food is very good too. There are places to eat nearby and the beautiful beach where you can get $20 hour long massages!

We were here for 3 days. The room was nice, bed was good. But we had no hot water. All in all we were happy with it. It was clean. Nice little bar and pool. And a lot cheaper than the beach front property two blocks away.

Family owned and these people take a lot of pride in their hotel.

So I...
