The House That Sings clings to a cliff above Playa la Ropa. All guest quarters have lovely furnishings, folk art, down pillows, and generous patios with bay views, though the decor, especially the pink-marble bathrooms, is beginning to look dated. Suites have outdoor living areas and some have jetted private infinity plunge pools. The hotel's central infinity pool seems to be airborne; tucked into the cliff below, a saltwater pool overlooks the pounding surf. The Mar y Cielo restaurant serves guests breakfast and lunch; dinners here are more formal and are open to the public, offering breathtaking views of the sun setting over the bay. Service is warm, thoughtful, and hardly noticeable (in a good way); the only trace may be the intricate flower-petal mosaic left on your bed each day.

The hotel considers any room with a double vanity and a plunge pool a master suite. I stayed in Suite 17 in Sol. This room was so small that it would fit on the terrace of some of the master suites. Suites in Mar and Luna actually fit the descriptions found on the website. However, the inventory of master suites has obviously been expanded to include rooms of an inferior quality. You take your chances with management including more suites as
"master" during peak times.
