On the waterfront 2 blocks from town, this hotel offers 15 air-conditioned rooms with fridges and a deck with hammocks. Some cabins have kitchens and private decks overlooking the water, and there’s a private waterfront 2-bedroom, 2-bath house with kitchen and deck. Rooms and common areas are enlivened by hand-painted murals, carved animal sculptures, and complex ironworks on the windows. The large, wood-and-bamboo rancho located just off the small kidney-shaped pool has a commanding view of the Puerto Jiménez harbor. The hotel offers guests free use of kayaks and bicycles. The owner offers excellent boat tours of the Golfo Dulce and the nearby mangroves.
