Fodor's Review

Rooms range from the upper-level half-dozen rooms with shared cold-water bath to the sumptuous garden-view rooms at the back of this place at Playa Negra just outside town, and everything in between. The friendly, environmentally conscious owners also have a meditation room in the back. All rooms make maximum use of ironwood, nispero, and blackwood construction and furnishings. The irregular shapes take advantage of every inch of wood, to keep things in as natural a state as possible. Few of the railings and room corners follow straight lines or 90-degree angles.
