Posada del Faro is one of my go-to places. I’ve been five times now and each time it is like coming back home. It’s a small place and one of the few hotels in Jose Ignacio. Just a handful of rooms, it books up early and often, and nearly impossible to get into around the peak high season over the Christmas holidays. The first time I tried to book a room, I got an email back from Jose, the owner, saying “There is no luxury in Jose Ignacio, the roads are unpaved, there is no ATM. We are just a small place and also not a luxury hotel. There is no restaurant, no room service and no gym.” That’s when I knew I had to go there. And I’ve been coming back ever since. It’d be hard to find a better hotel site, overlooking the beach just across the road, the perfect setting to view the burnt orange sunset each night.
