If you like a boutique style hotel, this is the place to stay. It’s a quaint and quiet place. The rooms are nice and the atmosphere is wonderful. The owner goes out of his way to make sure everyone has what they need and are happy with their stay. The restaurant on site is very good as well.

Very good management service located on property. Helpful with getting Covid test. Beautiful kept property and quiet. Room is a little tired and needs furniture refresh but adequate for the price. Will go back again!

hotel a little overrated.

Cons: a little more comfort inside room
Location: OK location but had walking to do to reach the main street. a few block could be problematic to some people.
Overall it was nice but not 4 star hotel. Clean, and staff was great. Food was good but the something everyday - after 4 days it got a little old. Need a chair inside room to sit and relax a little

EXCELLENT!

Location: A quick trip 5 min walk to downtown and you are on the beach, at shopping, restaurants, and grocery store.
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Arco Iris Hotel for a 4 night stay. It was definately a comfortable hotel, with an amazing staff. The Hotel owner, Richard was very friendly and around to chat with. the staff did above and beyond to make your stay comfortable, inviting, fun, and enjoyable. the rooms are very clean and beautiful with the wooden features and view of the trees, that you hear and see the monkeys howling from. Between excursions we would grab some drinks at the bar, or take a dip in the pool available. We will definatly be staying again. Highly reccomend, for a comfortable stay while in this foreign country.
