White stucco bungalows named for musicians and painters overlook the beach or interior courtyards. The sparse, contemporary rooms accommodate two, three, or five people. The bathrooms are tiny, however, and have no hot water. If you can opt for one of the suites, which have plunge pools, air-conditioning, and terraces, you'll be a lot more comfortable. An excellent outdoor restaurant draws diners from miles around, and on weekends the hotel fills with an interesting array
of guests, such as embassy personnel from Mexico City.
