A small property with well maintained private grounds and pool. Easy access to beach, transport (inexpensive cabs and bus) and restaurants. If your idea of 4/5 star is a corporate hotel with umbrella drinks then you may not agree with rating but... if you want clean, friendly, peaceful and reasonably priced diggs then you will be happy. My wife and I spent 2 weeks here with friends and were treated like welcome house guests rather than a profit centre. Owners are very accomodating. If you want to unplug, walk, explore and you are moderately self sufficent - Arecas will be hard to beat.
