A tropical garden beckons near the entry to this small hotel on a tree-lined street in Playa's north end. Spacious, sunny rooms with king or queen beds are painted in soft pastels; the large bathrooms have bidets and mosaic tiles. There's a computer with free Internet as well as a small lending library. It's the details, along with a super price, that make this hotel a real deal. If you want to splurge a bit, get a junior suite with a private balcony. Unfortunately, the
ocean view has been blocked by construction.
