Ventanas al Mar Review

The lights of San Miguel are but a distant glow on the horizon when you look west from the only hotel on the windward coast. Turn east, though, and you can watch shooting stars flash through the nighttime sky over the foaming sea. At this small, eco-friendly inn that runs on solar power, there are no phones or computer hookups, though at this writing management hopes to get Internet in the reasonable future. Commodious rooms are equipped with kitchenettes, sinks, and coffeemakers; mini-refrigerators are available on request. Two-story suites have a bedroom and full bath upstairs and a trundle sleeper sofa and half-bath downstairs. Rates ($184) are significantly higher but a bargain when shared among four people. A full breakfast is served on the open-air deck; lunches and early dinners are available at Coconuts next door. Sea turtles nest on the long beach beside the hotel in summer, and tropical fish and anemones gather by the rocky point in front of the rooms.

    Hotel Details

    wonderful getaway

    We have stayed here twice before for 10 days each time and look forward to going again this month. It is an amazing place - truly relaxing and incredible views. Rent a car and go into town, but feel your tension drain as you drive over to the east side and pull into Ventanas al Mar for the night. Heaven on earth!
