Really nice hotel right on the beach. Staff are super friendly and helpful. Large rooms. Nice pool. Includes breakfast which is always a plus. Complimentary tea/coffee/water available at all times. The staff go above and beyond and the location could not be better.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend it with a few caveats. PROS: Location was ideal--right on the beach with great views and one block from the town center, which had numerous restaurants, tour offices, a small neighborhood grocery store, bike rentals, wetsuit and snorkel rentals, and a couple of t-shirt/souvenir shops. The hotel has air conditioning and ceiling fans. They had 4 water tank stations throughout the hotel with filtered water where we could refill our water bottles. The pool area is beautiful. The folks at the front desk (Gabby and Daniel) were friendly and helpful. Gabby told us the penguins usually swim in the morning around 9 or 10 in front of the hotel. Sure enough, we were able to get in the water the next morning and had penguins swim by! The beach in front of the hotel rarely had any people on it (end of December). CONS: The bathrooms have a small window at the top that is screen only (no glass), so you can hear everything outside. Every morning, the garbage truck came by playing music. If you are sensitive to noise and want to sleep in, this probably isn't your best pick. If you decide to stay here on Dec 31, know that the town really parties with LOUD music all night until 5:00AM. There were several wifi networks available, but they weren't reliable in our (2) rooms. We had to go to the lobby or the pool for decent connections for e-mail and Whatsapp. There were tiny ants in both of our rooms (not sure if that's a common thing on the Islands).

Very friendly staff and the prime location directly at the beach and right around the corner from the main square made for a perfect stay. Rooms are spacious and clean and the rooftop provides amazing views at sunset. Breakfast is simple, but good quality and the buffet changes daily.

This has to be one of my top 3 hotels to stay in. Its location is stunning, right on the beach,and the views from the first floor rooms were on another level. The sun terrace is a great place to catch the sunset. The staff were excellent, nothing was too much . Plenty of choice at breakfast and filtered water freely available . I only spent 2 days there but would return in an instant. Definitely recommend

We stayed here for 6 nights and really liked it. The hotel is modern, clean and well run, with good staff and very personal service. Eg they not only arranged boat tours for us but organised for the tour company to bring wetsuits over ahead of the tour to make sure they were the right size. The hotel fronts onto a lovely sandy swimming beach, and the swimming pool and garden area are an extra bonus. Isabela is a beautiful island with a very laid-back, relaxed vibe which we loved. The hotel doesn’t serve lunch or dinner but there are plenty of casual bars and restaurants along the beachfront nearby.

Lovely hotel and the staff - particularly Gabriella are so lovely and very oriented to you getting the most out of your stay on Isabella Island. Every day Gabriella checked in with us to see how our stay was going and what we had been up to. It felt like a very personal service.

This is an excellent hotel property. Exceptionally clean and safe. Bath and bed linens are comparable to what you would experience at a Four Seasons Resort. Guest and food service exceeded our expectations. Great value for your vacation dollar. Plus the property is located right on the beach with great views of the ocean. I highly recommend this property for couples and families alike. We will definitely go back at some point in time.
