Casa del Sol
Lonely Planet review
This classy, well-priced new lodging, is discreetly located just before you enter West End proper. The tranquility more than makes up for not being within sight of the ocean.
If we had to choose one thing that stands out here it would be - of all things - the sinks. It's not often we get to say that, but the hand-painted Talavera ceramic sinks from El Salvador in the deluxe rooms really do catch the eye. That's taking away nothing from the rest of the place; this is the result of experienced globetrotters putting their views on traveler accommodations into practice. The rooms are tastefully done, and all include a porch and coffee-maker. The airier upstairs studios are particularly well kitted out with stoves and fridge-freezers. Just before the main entrance to West End (on the road to West Bay), this is delightfully quiet, even though it is just a couple of minutes' walk from town. It's the sort of place where agoutis wander into the yard without a care.
