Despite its sandy name, what makes this resort stand out is its landscaping: Singing Sands has the most lush gardens and grounds in the area. It’s a small resort, with just six individual thatch-roofed wooden cabins set in a row perpendicular to the beach, with cabin nos. 1 and 2 closest to the ocean. You’ll still get something of an ocean view from cabin nos. 3, 4, and 5, while no. 6 is set amid the flowers and foliage. Each has new hardwood floors, a small porch with a couple of chairs, and handmade local and Guatemalan decor. In addition to the cabins, there are four larger, fully equipped apartments with kitchenettes. Onsite also: a midsize outdoor pool, a large open-air deck area facing the ocean, and a long dock built out into the sea with a shaded palapa at the end of it. The restaurant here is quite good, with oceanfront open-air seating either under the stars or protected by a thatch roof.
