On the road to Isabel Segunda from Esperanza, this cozy inn offers unpretentious, comfortably furnished doubles and suites with kitchenettes. The beautiful pool area and flourishing grounds are set on 5 lush acres (you’ll see wild horses roaming nearby). There is good value here if you want to cook your own meals to hold down costs; Continental breakfast is included.
