Fodor's Review

The service is personalized and friendly at Shawandha, where spacious, beautifully designed bungalows are well back from the road at Playa Chiquita. The thatch-roof bungalows have elegant hardwoods, four-poster beds, and verandas with hammocks. Each bathroom has a unique and beautiful tile mosaic. The hearty breakfast starts off with an impressive fruit plate. A white-sand beach lies 180 meters away, across the road. Even if you don't stay here, stop by and enjoy a distinctive French-Caribbean dinner in the open-air restaurant.
