This small hotel offers well equipped bungalows, with a private small terrace with chairs and hamacs to relax while enjoying the gardens. Each room comes with AC, cable TV, hot water and a fridge and it is just a short walk away from town.

We spent two wonderful days at this little paradise. Gloria, the owner makes you feel at home instantly. The bungalows are spacious and fitted with AC and TV as well as good stocked minibar. Sitting outside on your private terrace in the late afternoon, listening to Bob Marley comes as close as possible to that special Caribbean feeling. Breakfast is...

The room houses were nice and neat and the showers worked pretty well (which is needed after the hot, sweaty days), we didn't eat the breakfast here but heard from other people that it's was pretty nice but simple, it's just out of town but within walking distance of the town. Recommend this lodge.

The location was close to town, if you are driving it is just past the main village area on the beach side is where the office is located. Gloria and Malow are both friendly and helpful. We stayed on in the beach bungalows, they were large and could accommodate a small family. The Garden bungalows across the street were also...

This place is wonderful! We were four and stayed in one of the garden houses close to the beach. Nobody around just the birds and monkeys. The place was very clean, had mosquito nets around the beds, fresh towels every day, AC and the most beautiful and well maintained garden I have ever seen. The water was hot and the...

I stayed here last week when I was on my one day trip in Costa Rica. The place is really beautiful, well maintained and very clean. I felt safe being there too because it is gated bungalows. The price is quite high, but looking at what I got It seemed okay. Claudia, the owner, was very nice and her dog...
