This hotel caters squarely to divers with a dive shop on premises, plus a pool and protected wade-in area for training. The 22 rooms are large and simply furnished, with balconies facing the sea – nothing to write home about – but the prices are right and the hotel restaurant provides free dessert and tequila shots with dinner. When the wetsuits are off, there’s a small strip of beach beside the pool with thatched umbrellas and a menu of margaritas.
