This hotel has individual cabins or villas. They are fairly spartan but clean with a comfortable bed and bath. There are few amenities but it is a great place to relax. Other reviewers mentioned highway noises but I wasn't bothered by it. It would be...More

I agree. You can walk to the beach. But the ocean is very rough. We did see a lot of scarlet macaws in the threes close to the beach. It's nice to go for a walk but not for a swim.
