The clear calm waters make it great for snorkelling and swimming, or lie back on the golden sands and catch some rays. Enjoy a saunter in the cooling breeze as the sun sets across a selection of bars hosting your evening's entertainment.

  • Lovely hotel. The owners were so nice and very helpful with suggestions of places to eat and see nearby. Breakfast is continental but very nice options. Good A/C, comfortable beds. Would definitely come back
  • A fantastic hotel. Accommodations and amenities are top-rate. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and well-styled. The open air layout makes the most of the island environment. Location is also convenient to local restaurants and the water. I will continue to stay at Malecon House for every visit.
  • My wife and I have stayed at Malecon House twice and loved it each time. We love the peaceful, relaxed atmosphere and especially the beautiful view at breakfast out front. The hosts are lovely people and went above and beyond to accommodate a work emergency for me, during their dinner no less! We cannot recommend this place enough. If serene and inviting is what you are looking for then Malecon House is absolutely for you. Looking forward visiting again! Say hello to my friend Coqui for me. PS - As a very welcome perk, the owners of the guest house have small coolers, folding chairs, umbrellas, and even some snorkel equipment they allow guests to borrow and take with them on their daily adventures to the beaches free of charge. I thought that was a very nice touch.
  • Wonderful stay. The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the view was incredible. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating, I would highly recommend!
  • Clean, quiet, comfortable, spacious rooms, and right down the road from great food and that perfect island atmosphere. Cannot beat the view!! Would not hesitate to return.
