La Viuda de Jose Ignacio
This appealing property does its best to be 'cool and charming' in a contemporary ambience. The geometrically-inspired modern two storey building features huge plate glass windows overlooking a tree-filled garden a short walk from the beach. It's all very light and airy.
The bright guest rooms vary: some have sea views you can enjoy from a Jacuzzi and the top-end rooms have a deck with private plunge pool. But all rooms have excellent amenities; Egyptian cotton sheets, robes, free Wifi, TV/DVD player with a selection of films and complimentary tea and coffee are standard. There are connecting rooms for families and a small crescent-shaped pool with sun loungers set on decking behind the hotel building.
You can take breakfast wherever you like, although there is no restaurant. However there are a couple of modest dining options nearby and more choice in the resort of San Ignacio which is 3km away, so having your own hire car is a good idea.
