The turquoise buildings at this friendly though basic hotel house small rooms with queen beds, pineapple print interiors, kitchenettes, and large windows with views of the ubiquitous tropical foliage. Suites are a bit larger and have two queen beds and a walk-in closet. Mosaic tile pathways, inlaid with dolphins and toucans, wind through the property. There's a small pool, from which a wooden catwalk leads through the woods to the beach.
