Located at the foothills of the CARARA National Forest where the worlds' concentration of migratory birds rest, you find this hidden gem nestled in one of the oldest fishing villages in tarcoles where you can get the best deal on the FRESHEST fish!
This was an extremely disappointing place to lodge, despite the kindness and helpfulness of the onsite manager, Bogdan. For one, the pictures on the site are deeply misleading in terms of the place's appearance. The inside is quite run down, with holes in the plaster in many places, very worn out floors, a heating plate that barely boiled water after 15 minutes, holes in the screen, and a non-functional fridge that serves as a kind of table that is completely moldy inside! Next, we arrived and there was no water to drink, and only half a roll of toilet paper. If it was made clear on the site that you had to supply all your water and TP, that would be one thing, but.. Lastly, there is nowhere to eat in the place (2 chairs inside, no table), and only 3 dishes. If the per night cost was say $40, this might be worth it, but for $80, truly outrageous. Despite the great time we had in Utilla and the Cays, we would never come back to these cabins. See our fuller review in Trip Advisor along with photos that really show what the place is like.
A really comfortable bungalow in a beautiful location. The owners have kayaks to borrow which are perfect for exploring the nearby cays. Be sure to make arrangements to stop off in Utila town to buy groceries before you take a boat out here so that you don't need to waste time or money running back and forth to the town and can enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended for people seeking a quiet place on the beach away from the noise and crowds!
This place can't possibly be more relaxing! We woke up to the sea at our feet... had coffee on the beach then snorkeled all morning! We spent our afternoons either diving with the local dive shop (they picked us up right at the dock with a friendly 'Good Morning Divers! Are you awake!?") and then kayaked over to the cays for dinner! COULD NOT ASK FOR A MORE RELAXING VACATION! Also, the resident puppy is pretty much the GREATEST dog alive! HIGHLY recommended!
