Imagine a classic Caribbean-style beach hotel situated on a tempestuous stretch of sand popularly regarded by aficionados as being surfer heaven. That’s the Ocean Front: small, compact and suitably modern, but not too flashy. Rooms have balconies and good views of the incoming surf and there’s a popular on-site restaurant-bar that hosts occasional live music.
Room rates are lowest during the week. The hotel is situated 5 miles west of Isabela on Playa Jobos.
