El Jardin provided such a slow-paced and easy-going place to unwind, slow the the mind and drink in the natural beauty. I loved the tree-house-esque palapa I stayed in up at the top of the property that had a wonderful shower and a great view of the entire bay. The sunrises were amazing up there, swinging on the hanging bed and watching the entire sky light up like a watercolor painting every morning. It was earthy and beautiful. The common area was a wonderful place to hang out with friends and the open kitchen provided some fun time cooking together. The gardens around the property are lovely.
It is especially nice that the location of El Jardin is very close to the small Isalbel's Beach. It was a calm and quiet entry point into the water and a great escape from the more frantic main beach in town.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- El Jardin is an eco-friendly garden retreat with the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Beautiful gardens surround the open air sleeping palapas. The communal area is open anytime, where guests can mingle, relax, read, dine, lay in a hammock or play one of the many games provided. There are recycling guidelines on-site and the manager will introduce you to the communal spaces at the start of your visit. The common areas are great way to meet people and relax. We have a great local cook who is available for meals and often dinners will be arranged for guests. Our casas are a "labor of love". We have worked hard to get the casas to the state they are in and continue to work to make improvements to make them better and more comfortable for you. ... more less
