Fodor's Review

Facing a formal garden with sculpted shrubs and a lovely, small pool just two blocks from the beach, this tranquil enclosure has airy, Mediterranean-style guest rooms shot through with hot, tropical colors. Each room has high ceilings, plenty of windows, and king-size beds atop adobe platforms, meaning mattresses don't have a lot of give. Single beds nearby double as sofas by day. Coffeemakers and hair dryers are welcome extras. A second-story suite has its own terrace overlooking the garden. There are various pet cats prowling in the garden. There's a small on-site restaurant serving breakfast only, but there are several restaurants just a few blocks away. A major plus is the covered parking area, which helps keep your car cool.
