We spent 10 days at the Fenix in December and can't wait to go back.. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, even without a/c. It cools off enough at night and with the fans going we needed covers...The grounds were kept nice and clean, and the rooms were clean and tidy... We especially liked the fact that we were so close to the beach. And the walk into town was a short 15 min. treck..
Bill and Phyliss were very helpful in getting us lined up on things to do. The zip line is only a couple of blocks away, a must do. and the turtle egg laying tour comes to the Fenix to pick you up... couldn't ask for anything more... The store is also a couple of blocks away and has most everything you need for your stay.
Bill and Phyliss went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We even got to meet their grandsons. The older grandson would bring fresh bakery good that his Mom bakes up every morning. Yummy... and then in the afternoon, the Ceviche
lady would come around... Don't get much better than that..
Anyhow, If you are looking for a Clean,& comfortable place to stay that is close to town, and has a great view the Fenix is the place to stay...
- 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
