We stayed here while passing through Tarcoles. The town itself is somewhat 'rustic' but beautiful. Lots of bird watching to be done! Scarlet macaws nest in a tree you can see from the hotel. The website is somewhat misleading, but I understand the owner is trying to get business. However, the hotel is quite literally in the shadow of two... More

We stayed at Sunni Daze 3 nights in November 2012.
