A five-minute walk from the port, this hotel's circular exterior staircase and wooden railings spruce up what would otherwise be a plain, four-story rectangle. The large, white rooms with rustic furnishing all have views of the surf, 100 yards away, but look a little sparse for the price and require a minimum two-night stay, except for the top Flamingo Suite. This suite boasts an attractive wet bar and king-sized bed separated from the rest of the suite by a stepped, semi-open wall. The second-floor Pez Suite also has a king-sized bed, while all the others offer one or two queen-sized beds. The excellent, very friendly service more than makes up for my quibbles over room design, however, and the hotel's rooftop terraces offer fine places to relax. Breakfast includes San Cristóbal Island’s famous organic coffee.
