Fodor's Review

Surfers are the main clientele in these nice rooms with high ceilings, clay-tile floors, and sliding-glass doors that open onto semiprivate balconies and terraces, most of which have good views of Playa Hermosa. Second-floor rooms have better views, as do the two spacious corner suites with separate bedrooms and large balconies—they're a good deal for small groups. Creature comforts include minibars, Wi-Fi, coffee makers, and a/c. You can watch the surfers from a nice little pool surrounded by tropical foliage in back.
