A stimulating change from the street on which it lies, this hacienda-style building is strikingly hip and sleek. The circular lobby is designed with illuminated onyx stone and features a martini bar, marble floors, and teak furnishings accented with olive and cream cushions. Similar in style, many of the rooms come in neutral colors and are pleasantly decorated with Mexican wall prints and wrought-iron bed frames. All pool-facing rooms have balconies, and there's one handicapped-accessible
unit here. In 2011, the hotel added a new wing called Margaritas, which has a more casual feel than the main building. The daily breakfast buffet is popular with locals, and there's a shuttle to the beach. The children's program is available only on weekends.
