Che Shale is remote, rustic and intimate, from 4pm to 11am. The dynamics of this thatched roof Robinson Crusoe-style lodge change dramatically with the arrival of the lunch crowd and kite surfers. But you needn't stroll far to find privacy. Che Shale is the only hotel on the bay! Family travel tips: Che Shale has 5 budget bandas and 5 stylishly decorated huts. The food is excellent. Snorkeling is best from December to March; silt turns the blue bay a murky brown from June through October.

Child-friendly but short on kids

Don't book a stay at Che Shale expecting playmates for children. - My 7-year-old daughter was the only guest below the age of 25 during our 4-night stay. - But do book anyway. The staff is child-friendly. The beach offers lots to keep kids busy. My daughter loved the thatched huts, open-air shower, and tea on the patio. They were all part of the adventure. The negatives? The atmosphere is somewhat clubby. We had a quibble over the bill. They tried to charge us a 5% credit card fee. The excuse, most guests pay cash. I was glad to have packed our email correspondence, which q uoted the rate but didn't mention a credit card fee nor state cash only.
