What a gem!! If you're in the area, book this hotel. You will NOT regret it. A few notes .. 1. Hotel/Grounds - GORGEOUS!

We just spent three nights here and loved it. Great location, huge rooms, very clean, staff were fabulous and the breakfast was huge and delicious! The pool was wonderful and we were thrilled to see the monkeys visit us every afternoon by the pool. Would highly recommend this hotel, look no further as this one is a gem!

We stayed here based on the good reviews on trip advisor. The hotel is located in a plaza. The rooms were really nice and big and had a little kitchenette. There is an art gallery that had some cool and funky pieces. The staff were really nice and friendly and offered us a small gift when we left.

I loved this hotel. It's an artsy, boutique place and for me ticked all the boxes. We parked our rental car out front when we arrived and didn't use it again the whole time we were here! Our room was huge and overlooked the pool area and forest. The bathroom was big, modern and clean. We also had a kitchenette...
