Burned to the ground in early 2013, this place was quickly rebuilt and is better than ever. Rooms are spacious and feature sturdy steel bed frames, white linens and whitewashed walls offset with bright primary accents. Superior rooms come with large, flat-screen televisions and more space. Most rooms open on to a private or shared balcony or veranda fronting the small central pool and gardens. Despite its name, this hotel really should be considered part of Playa Brasilito, which is about 2 blocks away. Owners Simon and Hilda are delightful and very hands-on. Service is very attentive and personal, and the hotel's tropical fusion Papaya ★★ restaurant is one of the best in the area.
