The town itself is tiny, picturesque, tranquil - the kind of place people don't lock there doors. The chef and owner of the hotel, Francis Mallman, is the Don of the town and has brought several foreigners to buy in the area.
The hotel is beautiful, full of back copies of the New Yorker to ponder while you let time tick by. It is very stylish but the bedroom walls are very very thin. The food is also extraodrinarily expensive but very good. There aren't much other options in the town but Lucifer's is a great one - opened by Mallman's former sous-chef, it is charming and very good value. A gazpacho I will not forget.
The hotel is charming and great to escape from Jose Ignacio or Punta fun for some peace and quiet if you want it.
