Lodging Style and Amenities
This 16-room property started as a land development and then turned into a hotel/resort after the 1970s recession. It is known for its exotic dining experience, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner by the seaside. The menu includes fresh local fruits at any time of the day, with a variety of sandwiches on homemade bread for lunch, and dishes like grilled lobster tail for dinner.
If you’re staying in a villa, you have the option to prepare some of your own meals using the kitchen stocked with pots, pans and utensils. In addition, there is always a plate of fresh baked cookies, a stalk of local bananas or a basket full of seasonal fruits for snacks on the go, including pineapple, watermelon, papaya, tomatoes, and limes too.
