Located at one of my favorite surf breaks, Playa Carmen, which has tons of...

I spent my Christmas holidays with my girlfriend. I had a perfect surfing time with the friendly people that I met there, the spot is amazing and the waves are impressive, the biggest of the shoreline. My girl had the best yoga retreat and massages and so on.... Definitely the place to be.

The hotel is in the best location in the area, beach front, that it's perfect for my daily surf sessions. The restaurant has a talented chef named Randy. The products are local from nearby farm all biological and I don't know what will be my life without another delicious Powe juce!

Amazing beach front location and close to shops and restaurants. What I loved the most was the hotel Spa!! Very relaxing, great service and knowledgeable staff. If you are looking for a family place where everybody has some fun, this is your place to go!! I also loved the hammocks by the beach at sunset!

Lovely people, lovely place, lovely time. Everything was comfortable and friendly. Our apartment was facing the Ocean and it's such an experience to wake up with that beauty in your eyes. And with horses running freely all over the place... in Costa Rica horses are kept free!

Excellent location with direct beach access, close to all of the restaurants and shops, and the villas/bungalows are nicely tucked away closer to the beach to give you a quiet place to rest and relax.

Great Beach Front Hotel. Location of the premisses are the best in Mal Pais. Nice restaurant a little expensive but worth the views to the surf break.
