Highly recommend tropical getaway, 10/10 host!!!
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Jul 2023via mobile
Playa de Sala is an amazing tropical getaway and definitely recommended if traveling to San Pedro town! The hospitality was amazing, they had a golf cart for me and scuba booked within 1 hour!!! Sala is a very knowledgeable host/owner, will tell you all about about island life, is well respected in the community and will hang out with her guests! This boutique resort has clean rooms with quality amenities, beautiful sunset views from the rooftop restaurant with live music, refreshing pool with build in seats and historic Jamaican boat bar!!!!!

One review (one) said this is a swinger hotel. Not sure where they got that idea lol. I did not pickup any swinger vibes.

Sits right on a bay WITH NICE SANDY BEACH with free to use paddle boards and kayaks which I took full advantage of! FYI most of the beaches in San Pedro are covered in Sargassum (seaweed) thus beaches must be cleared and sandy beaches are hard to come by. Which makes this resort ideal.

Location is southern end of the island and not a problem driving back at night via golf cart. You would probably have to throw a beer at a police to earn a DUI, be respectful!!!! Don’t ruin it.

The owner and her staff are amazingly friendly and pay such careful attention to detail at this boutique hotel. The rooms are perfect- contemporary, clean, comfortable. We had the Travertine Room on the first floor/corner which was private but still just a few steps from the pool. The tranquil views from the room and balcony were beautiful. There are plenty of lounge chairs, palapas, and a refreshing (but small) pool. The on-site bar and restaurant were perfect for every meal- great variety, quality, and so flavorful. Their new boat bar is awesome!!
We especially appreciated the generosity and helpfulness of the owner, Forest, and the hard working staff. We were so well taken care of! Juli and Ian helped us with taxis, booking a snorkeling tour and arranged massages on site- MUST DO activities!
The hotel is a jaunt from town but very safe and easy to navigate via rack or golf cart rental, even late at night. I love supporting & feeling well connected to the local community and I felt like by staying here we fulfilled that! Great place to stay for sure!!

Playa De Sala had such a luxurious yet homely feel about. I loved the fact it was close enough to the town if you needed anything but far enough away to feel like you’re in complete privacy and serenity. We enjoyed days by the pool and chatting with the friendly staff who were only too happy to help with anything we may need. The food is absolutely delicious! The club sandwich being my favourite which paired nicely with Melvins famous coconut pina colada. We felt incredibly relaxed our entire stay and that’s large thanks to the huge luxurious bed and high quality comfortable linen. Our room was serviced daily and done very well, it was such a nice feeling to come back to after a long hot day exploring the island. We were sad to leave and hope to visit again soon!

Thank you Forrest, Ian, Melvin and the rest of the crew for an unforgettable stay.

My partner and I were after a romantic, quiet getaway and we definitely came to the right place at Playa De Sala!

Firstly the communication and ease of booking was great! A staff member greeted us on arrival with delicious cocktails and a fresh cool eucalyptus towel which was a welcoming treat after such a long hot day travel! Our room was so modern and clean and we appreciated the little snacks and coffee station. The bed - OMG! It’s the best we have slept on in months of travelling! If my partner could put it in his suitcase I’m sure he would haha. A deep restful sleep meant we woke up feeling amazing which only added to an already great getaway. The food is incredible! Treat yourself while you’re there and try everything! We loved that it’s located on the quiet side of town away from the hustle and bustle of busy San Pedro central. We enjoyed days hanging by the pool and watching sunset at the gorgeous rooftop bar and restaurant at night.

All in all we had a fantastic stay and would recommend to anyone looking for a luxury, quiet, restful stay on San Pedro island.

Room tip: I recommend hiring a golf cart on arrival so you can explore the island and pop into the main centre if you need anything

The accommodations are out of this world, Playa De Sala is without a doubt the very best hotel on the island. If you enjoy peaceful, friendly, first rate hotel and restaurants - you will not be disappointed. The room was stunning, the view equally stunning, the food was so delicious and staff so kind and friendly, we enjoyed every day and every meal! It was so nice to be on the lagoon side of the island south where there are not sargassum to deal with, it truly is the perfect location. Forest, the owner, is an absolute sweetheart angel and made our stay truly amazing. We have told all of our friends what an incredible paradise resort this is and highly highly recommend. This is the perfect place for a romantic get away, as a solo, or with friends.

The resort is very small. Only 5 units and it is about 20 minutes from town where everything is. If you like quiet then this is the place for you but the pool is so small and half of it is under the shade. The website is deceiving the way they photographed the pool. The beach is not swimmable. It is black, murky water. Our room (Wood Room) was tiny and we had no privacy when using the bathroom. There is literally a wooden framed box-like area at the foot of the bed that doesn’t go up to the ceiling and the toilet is inside. The staff, however, was so friendly and helpful… we really loved them. The continental breakfast only consisted of two scrambled eggs with a piece of toast and a few little pieces of fruit, along with coffee or tea but if you wanted a refill on either, they charged for it. They have a roof deck that you can eat at and the food was just average… nothing to speak of. We had to go into town every day for breakfast lunch and dinner. If you stay here you definitely need to rent a golf cart for the week to get around. You are literally in the middle of nowhere.

Room tip: Rent a golf cart for your stay.The only beach worth going to is Secret Beach & it is an hr & half away. Stay closer to town.

Thank you for your feedback. Im sorry to hear you were not happy about the room you picked. I wish you would have said something when you were here . We could have looked into moving you into a different room as they are all different.
It's always best to say something right away. Our goal is to ensure that you enjoy your time with us.
