Highs & Lows

  • The bedding is divine...owner imports luxury Italian linen from Bellino.

  • The personal & quaint atmosphere that owner Karla Gutierrez creates...you never want to leave!

  • The Isis Spa. Carlos the massage therapist & healer is magical.

  • The Pizza! Ceviche & Guac are a must too.

  • The menu could be simpler. A few pizzas, two pastas, two incredible salads and a few very simple grilled seafood dishes. That's all you need on the beach.

  • Better closets & storage for clothing as some rooms are small.

  • No ceiling fans in the rooms.
