This hotel is older and very basic, but the service and views are to die for. We were only going to stay 2 nights and decided to stay a 3rd. Love the beach!!! San Carlos is very small (still) so everything you need is close by. Rooms and grounds were very clean and neat. We both like that there are no TVs in the rooms, we didn't have to deal with unwanted noise. This hotel is for book readers and nature lovers.
