Fodor's Review

One of the few hotels right on the beach, this small inn has lofty, breezy bungalows up at palm-tree level, perfect for folks who love the open air and looking down on the beach action. Guests climb up wood stairs to the separate "tree-house" cabins, each set on tree-trunk pillars with hammocks slung between at ground level, plus two beach chairs and a barbecue grill set out on small patches of grass. Each cabina has a kitchenette, ceiling fan, and wall-size, unscreened window to let in as much sea air as possible. Mosquito nets over the beds protect from any unwanted visitors at night. A ground-floor cabina and one other smaller room ($89) by the small pool and Jacuzzi have air-conditioning. There's a small bar by the pool and breakfast is served at nearby tables shaded by a thatch roof. There's safe parking for six cars.
