Fodor's Review

A two-year renovation, during which time the resort was closed, has resulted in a more sedate, less whimsical decor that, like the original Hotelito, includes elements of hardwood, bamboo, and palm-thatch designed by a group of young tapatios (artisans from Guadalajara). It's far from rustic, however: witness 600-thread-count sheets, Jacuzzi tubs, expansive furnished terraces, and private docks with personal canoes; the smallest palafito (house on wooden

stilts) is more than 1,000 square feet. There are private butlers, too. The property is lit by torches, lanterns, candles, and low-wattage lamps. On a long stretch of beach, this isolated hotel is an idyllic escape for its discerning, high-end clientele. An integral part of the concept is health and self-improvement. Programs range from the five-day "mom-to-be" to the 21-day "love the way you look" program; organic fruits and veggies make their way from the property's garden to guests' table, along with fish and seafood.
