Chasing sun and surf.
My boyfriend and me.
Each guest bungalow feels like a fancy jungle tree house.
The view from my Brooklyn apartment is…different than this.
Plunge pool—perfect for cooling off after a sweaty trek back from town.
A delicious breakfast is served each morning. This is just the first course!
Communal lounge area by the pool, in case you need a break from the sun.
Ideal poolside situation.
Playa de los Muertos is a quieter alternative to the main beach in town.
Where margaritas are born.
View from our balcony—the lineup of cliffside bungalows overlooking the ocean.
Highs + Lows
Whether you’re having coffee on your balcony overlooking the Pacific or cooling off in the cliff-side pool, everywhere you look the views are jaw-droppingly beautiful.
Beds are incredibly comfortable with fresh, crisp linens.
With only seven villas, the hotel feels super private and quiet. We spent most afternoons at the pool, yet the only time we saw other guests was at breakfast.
You are in the jungle, so expect to encounter some wildlife. Geckos scurry along roofs and walkways and the partially open-air bungalows do allow some little bugs in at night. The mosquito nets aren’t just decorative.
The walkway from the front gate to the villas is a steep incline, but the staff is more than happy to help you bring up your bags or give you a lift on a golf cart.

Low-key luxe jungle enclave.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean. It’s a 5 minute walk to the serene Playa de los Muertos and a 15 minute walk to the center of town.
Jungle sounds with pleasant jazz by the pool.

Pool, yes. Gym, no.
No restaurant, but a complimentary breakfast is prepared each morning. You can book a personal chef to cook a private dinner at the hotel for about the price of a NYC date night.
Pool bar, sometimes manned by a staff member.
Stocked with Coca-Cola, Pacifico & water with a larger wine, beer, and liquor list available.
Free WiFi in the communal spaces, but the villas are internet-free.
Four star luxury at a two star price.
