Like so many others my wife and I were truly happy with our choice of the Flor de Maria. We stayed there for a week but others in the hotel were there literally for months. Although it seems a bit odd to stay that long in a hotel it does show you how comfortable and pleasant the place is. Paul and Joanne are natural hoteliers and restauranteurs - they like people, they are effortless helpful and they run a fine establishment. It is, however, a quiet place that caters to a mature crowd. No lively late night bar but that's not very far away if you want one. Their roof top terrace/bar with view of the ocean (and small pool) is a perfect place for the hottest part of the day and the restaurant claimed our custom for roughly half the time basically on the strength of Joanne's considerable skills. In the end, who could ask for more?
On a final note - the location is very good for Puerto, if you like to swim in the ocean you are minutes away from Playa Marinero - a small stretch of beach (part of the Playa Principal) which is nice and swimmable. Not as beautiful as Carrizalilo but it's right there. If you stay on Zicatella, and you're not a surfer, then you'll have to take a taxi or take a longer walk to swim.
