Fodor's Review

Though a short walk from Flamingo Beach and in need of some updating, there's still plenty to do at this collection of hillside rooms and villas, with three pools, tennis courts, a dive shop, a tour desk, a sportfishing operation, and a small beach. The rooms are looking dated with their mango hue, terra-cotta lamps, hand-carved wooden furniture, and shell-shape sinks, though they are big and functional. The captain suites and condos have modern kitchens and spacious sitting areas with leather couches. Nearly all rooms and condos have large verandas with views of the sea and Playa Potrero.
