Fodor's Review

Facing a formal garden with sculpted shrubs and a lovely, small pool just two blocks from the beach, this tranquil enclosure of stylish suites has modern, airy, Mediterranean-style guest rooms shot through with hot, tropical colors. Each room has high ceilings, plenty of windows, and gleaming white tiled bathrooms. King-size beds roost atop adobe platforms, while 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, including a pure white one with blue eyes. There's a small on-site restaurant open during high season only, or you can head to La Dolce Vita just a few blocks away. A major plus is the covered parking area, which helps keep your car cool.
