We are a family oriented hotel, welcoming singles, couples, wedding parties, families, children, and handicap guests. Being a small hotel of 7 rooms we offer a warm family atmosphere with the added bonus of having the amenities of the larger hotels. In 2007 we accomplished a total remodel including all guestrooms with European tiles and exotic Mahogany and Cedar woods throughout. The hotel also features the addition of a new custom pool and spa.

This hotel is great. Dennis, the owner is the most helpful person imaginable. Only 7 rooms, but that is a plus in my book. I strongly recommend this place wanting to stay in the Playa Carrillo/Samara area. Dennis, thanks for the wonderful experience!

Quisiera saber el precio por noche para 8 adiltos y y fos niñps
Estimado Luis, se que cuentan con una cabaña hasta 6 personas, 8 adultos a mi parecer serían 2 cabañas o tres el hotel tiene sólo 7 cabañas y 5 son solo para dos adultos , mágico el lugar, la atención y las comodidades, no obstante te aconsejo comunicarte con su dueño el Sr. Dennis Clifton y el te dará con seguridad los mejores precios. Suerte
