Our favourite rooms
The Bungalows are our favourite options for their spacious, 1970s-style rooms, and huge decks with rocking chairs and outdoor showers. They feel like your own home at the beach. Of these, Bungalow 26 has a completely private patio, making it the ideal honeymooner hideaway.
A heated freshwater pool sits in the heart of the property’s tropical garden, with several surrounding chaises. Palm fronds shade portions of the water for sun-shy swimmers.
Board shorts are essential for tackling the waves and fitting in with the local surfers. The hotel can provide soft boards for beginning surfers, though experienced wave-catchers are welcome to bring their own gear. Leave your vices behind: this organic-minded property is all about the pura vida.
The closest gas station is a 45-minute drive, so arrive with a full tank.
Baby cots are available free. Extra beds cost US$50 each. The hotel can arrange babysitting at the time of booking. Rates start at US$20 an hour.
The property composts, uses solar-powered water heaters, and landscapes with native plants. The staff also works with a local non-profit to protect the local sea turtle habitats and end poaching. In lieu of providing bottled water, the hotel has a spigot near the reception area that provides purified rain-water.
