With 4 acres of gardens and trees beside the mangroves, this hotel offers up rich wildlife viewing right on-site. The communal kitchen and lounge are popular gathering places, and there’s a Ping-Pong table. The rooms come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and are clean if somewhat bare-bones (colorful hand-painted details adorn the walls, and there’s wooden furniture in some, giving them a bit more personality). The town and waterfront are each about 3 or 4 blocks away, in opposite directions. All rooms have hot water, a/c, and private baths.
