This newly renovated resort is awesome. If you get a chance to book the beach front cabana you will enjoy a scenic spot with a lot of privacy. The room inside sis spacious and the bathroom super comfortable. The Italian food is very authentic and the staff attentive. The location is to die for; playa Bonita is possibly the best... More

Wonderful accommodations. Location, cleanliness and management top notch. The restaurant is not to be missed. An ocean view casita will provide the sounds of the surf to sleep by although all rooms looked to be pleasantly placed.

Beautiful, individual cottages situated on a large oceanfront property. We enjoyed well mixed mojitoes while relaxing on the terrace near the bar. The room was quiet, clean and pretty. Tasty breakfast served in large dining room adjacent to bar. A paved walking path runs alongside the sea. Good beach for swimming and practicing surfing. The new owners are very friendly... More
