Just returned from a wonderful time back at the Hotel Fenix. It was like coming home to the newly painted Unit number 4. The beach is ever changing but was as beautiful as ever. It was great to be welcomed by by Phyllis and Bill. This year we took advantage of the barbeque supplied by the Fenix and what could be more perfect than to bbq steaks,while sipping wine and watching the sunset from the beach in front of your room. Jessica's fresh pastries and quiche arrived every morning to start our day. We used Fenix as our home base and explored from there and found some wonderful hidden gems. The best patio to watch the sunset, a waterfall off the beaten path, breathtaking views from the top of the mountain and a wonderful patio looking over a valley to have lunch. Phyllis is a wonderful source of information on the best places to go. Phyllis and Bill are always there to make sure that you are having the best time possible.
If you are looking fo a vacation away from tourists and crowds this is the place to go. Beautiful location, friendly hotel guests, exceptional hosts. What more could you ask for?
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Six time winner of the Traveller's Choice Award for 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2009! Thank you to all of our wonderful guests. We are a small (6 rooms), beach-front hotel just footsteps from the ocean. Our rooms are clean, colorful and comfortable. We are NOT an all-inclusive, luxury resort. More like your place at the beach, but with someone else doing the daily cleaning, changing the linens and yard work. The rooms are in a semi-circle and face the pool, gardens and the ocean. (see photos) Great way to meet new people and exchange information and stories. We have been here 17 years managing our "little piece of paradise". Our front yard is sand with ranchos and palm trees for plenty of shade. Hammocks, sunbeds, small pool, gardens and BBQ complete our front yard. All of our rooms have fully equipped kitchens with separate bedroom. The deluxe room has AC & widescreen TV. Standard rooms have upper and lower screened windows and two ceiling fans. Our neighborhood has a small grocery store & fish market, along with local deliveries of fruits and fresh ceviche. An enjoyable 15 minute walk to Samara Central. Most of our guests return or have been recommend by friends. Thank you for considering our special place by the sea. ... more less
