    OK stay. Too expensive for what it is.

    Amazing views but not worth the price paid.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Beautiful location with convenient access to two beaches, one private and one public. Breakfast and meals at Playitas restaurant were very good quality. The Mirador restaurant is not as good of a value....I was expecting better food for the price. The property is on a very steep hill, so it's not practical to walk to other restaurants from there, but you can get a taxi or they will take you in their shuttle. They will also drive you around the property in a golf cart...otherwise it's very steep walking. You can see wildlife on the property (monkeys, macaws, etc.). We also did the national park tour with Esteban, and he did an excellent job helping us to spot wildlife there. Highly recommend a private tour starting early in the morning to avoid crowds at the beach. View from our room (Ocean View Premium) 603A was incredible.
