We stayed at the Amaranto for five nights in March. Jorge was very helpful from the beginning with email and logistics. The second floor suite was inexpensive by North
American standards and could have slept more than just my fiancee and I. It would be comfortable for a small family. The room had an air conditioner that we didn't use. It also had a refrigerator, a turbo charged ceiling fan, a toaster oven, lots of plates and utensils, and a microwave. These helped to keep our expenses down and the tequila cold. The bed was firm and comfortable and the linens were fresh. We slept well.
Breakfast was good with juice, coffee, fresh fruit, and an entree every morning. We enjoyed seeing Eduardo (who was keeping the inn in Jorge's absence) and talking with him. He is a vivacious, sweet man with a wealth of knowledge. He's one of those people who puts you in the right mood!
The inn is about five blocks from the ocean and the plaza, with lots of restaurants and scuba shops in-between. We felt safe walking everywhere at all times. Some of the restaurants that we enjoyed were, Antojitos Ambar, for the most delicious and cheapest tacos, Le Chef, for a mid price level Mediterranean treat, and Parilla Del Sol, an Argentine grill and empanada joint. The five meat grill was fantastic and was suggested for two people but could have served four. There were tango dancers. Um!-sexy.
We rented a car so we could tour the island. The trips to the beach could have gotten expensive if we had to take taxis for every trip.
So, we recommend Amaranto to anyone who doesn't want to seclude themselves in an all inclusive environment.
Thank you, Jorge, Eduardo, and Manuella for the great experience. We will look forward to seeing you next time! Heather and Austin
