Villa del Sueño Review

Although the handsome garden restaurant ($20) is the main attraction at this elegant hotel, the spacious rooms and well-equipped villas are quite comfortable, too, though the hotel is about a block from the beach. Rooms have up-to-date bathrooms, comfortable mattresses, and tropical color schemes. The smaller "standard" rooms around the small pool are a good deal, and they open onto small terraces with chairs. Larger "superiors" above the restaurant sleep more people, but if you need more room, spring for a one- or two-bedroom suite in the development across the street, which have kitchenettes, large balconies, or terraces, and are steps away from a larger pool. The restaurant has excellent food, including filet mignon with a brandy-and-peppercorn sauce, perfectly cooked mahimahi in shrimp sauce, and garlicky butterfly shrimp. Service is polished but the atmosphere is not stuffy, especially on nights when there's live jazz or acoustic rock.
