The entrance is open onto the street with a bar to serve as the reception check-in. There are a few tables with chairs set up where guests can hang out and have a drink or stop by to grab the beach towels and snorkel gear that hangs by the bar. The laid back lobby is a great introduction to what awaits the guest on the floors above.
The guest rooms are playful. Floor to ceiling windows serve as walls to the outside world, appealing to the exhibitionist inside all of us. Inflatable inner tubes and rubber flip flops hang from the walls, soccer balls and swim fins are stashed under each bed. The yellow and orange lighting and free standing bath tubs in the middle of each room are a few of the finishing touches that make this place so sexy. The aesthetics are simple and yet so right.
On the upper levels you can find the outdoor restaurant and lounge where the laid-back motel beach theme continues. A neptune green bar displays lush tropical fruits for fresh juice and cocktails you would only sip on vacation, and the retro lounge furniture is ideal for gazing over at the playa through a pair of oversized sunglasses.
A pair of small, circular orange pools kiss atop the Básico; two perfect accent marks on the steamy sensuality that fills the hotel below.
