Cristal Ballena is boutique resort with just 21 rooms located on a large 12 hectare property. The hotel is located on the rainforest covered hills just above Ballena beach which is part of the marine national park. The views from this privileged position are outstanding with beautiful sunsets over the ocean. You can walk to the beach which is an interesting hike or take the hotel’s own complimentary shuttle service.

Cristal Ballena is the closest hotel to the Ballena beach and accompanying marine national park

There is an enormous, 400 square metre swimming pool and a spa offering a variety of treatments. The grounds of the hotel are extensive and the beautifully kept tropical gardens are a haven for over 200 species of birds that have been spotted on the property. You can explore the various nature trails or go birdwatching. The rooms are generously sized and all come with private balconies, private bathrooms, air conditioning and all the amenities you require. The restaurant is particularly good and there is a gift shop on site too.
