Malpais Hotels and Lodging

Malpaís' sun-drenched town is set along a beach that alternates between long stretches of sand and large portions of rock. With less development than Santa Teresa, thick swaths of jungle continue to hug the shoreline, providing necessary respite from the midday sun. In some cases, the hotels in Malpaís are set right upon the sandy border with the beach; others you’ll find within the small town or in the hills that adjoin the streets. As with most places in the region, there is an assortment of accommodation options that range from the opulent to the out of the ordinary. Visitors will enjoy hotels with good restaurants (many of which feature fresh fish options), garden bungalows, and swimming pools. Many of the properties are strewn with hammocks and lounge chairs, and most of the individual rooms come equipped with air conditioning and private bathrooms. Motifs range from African to Latin to Mediterranean, with emphasis placed on both comfort and design.
