The design features a round-edged concrete structure with lattice work, inspired by Puerto Rico's modernist architecture popular in San Juan during the 1950s. The result is an iconic inn by the sea, combining elements of sculpture and oasis. It offers a bar, restaurant, and rooms for travelers looking for a comfortable stay after a day of relaxation. The rooms are affordable, with simple yet luxurious appointments, including colored hidrolico tiles, exposed concrete, native woods, and clean, minimalistic spaces. The bar and restaurant serve Creole cuisine and are run by an award-winning chef.
