Our place is unique, and the majority of our visitors are return guests. We cater to folks who prefer a quiet and relaxing home base while exploring our friendly, and interesting little community, with its beautiful surroundings.
We are tucked in, away from the noise and dust of the roads. Our grounds are lush and peaceful, with beautiful landscaping, and the sounds of nature and the ocean in the background. We have lounge chairs at the pool in the shade or in the sun. We're surrounded by three-story forest, and our location on the Maritime Zone is the very best. Our four mile long, white sand, year round surf beach, Playa Guiones, is less than a two minute walk from our property via our direct, forested, pathway to the sand and surf. By law, no one can build in The Maritime Zone, so we are essentially on the ocean, and we hear the waves 24 hours a day.
Playa Guiones has a lot to offer. We are a short walking distance to most everything: groceries, restaurants, bars, live music, coffee shops, ice cream shop, surfboard rentals, bank, skateboard park, miniature golf, etc.
Also within two or three blocks, you'll find numerous surf shops and surf schools, including The Del Mar Surf Academy, which meets at the ocean end of our two minute beach trail.
Yoga, pilates, massage, and other wellness sessions are available at several nearby locations, including The Healing Center at The Harmony Hotel, which is less than a four minute walk from our hotel. Also within a short walking distance is a doctor's office, a pharmacy, a bank with ATM; an office center; board, bike, auto and ATV rentals.
Just around the corner from us you can rent bikes, snorkeling gear, umbrellas, beach chairs, videos, and a book exchange.
There are a number of family friendly tours and activities available to our guests. We are available to help with planning and reservations. There's the Miss Sky zip line; horseback riding; River Safari bird watching tour; fishing trips; guided nature hikes; a fresh water pool and waterfall hike; a visit to the SIBU Wildlife Sanctuary to interact with rescued howler monkeys, etc.
Having said all of this, you also have the option of just hanging out at the pool with a good book, or meditating, where no one will bother you. If you're still, you'll hear the sounds of the surf and the forest animals. While walking quietly in the forest you might spot a variety of birds, beautiful squirrels, giant iguanas, and the occasional group of Howler Monkeys. There are also a number of other harmless but interesting mammals to be observed.
