Casa Opuntia is a small hotel set just across the boardwalk from the beach at Playa de Oro. All 13 rooms are light and airy, with white linens, walls and curtains, pale tiled walls and splashes of bright colour provided by cushions and throws. All are air conditioned and have an en-suite shower room. They feature local artwork. Rooms vary in size and layout, and 7 are located in the main building, 5 of which have ocean views, with the others in a separate wing,

The hotel has an open air restaurant which specialises in seafood, including the highly recommended ceviche, fresh fish infused in citrus juices.
