Four bungalows are in one building, two on the second floor, and two on the bottom floor. The upstairs bungalows open up into balconies overlooking magnificent views of lush tropical gardens, the “Laguna del Tule” and the quiet grounds of Villa Xochipilli. The two bottom bungalows open directly into the exotic garden gardens, bringing you one step closer to nature.

The sitting area and the dining room connect to the balcony. There is a hand wash laundry area available with local laundry service also available. There is hot water, cable TV, ceiling fans in every room and one bungalow with air conditioning, which is not normally needed because of the villa's location next to the lagoon where there is almost a constant fresh breeze.
