Far Exceeded Expectations !
The Illusion Boutique was everything & more ! The hosts...genuine & welcoming to the extreme ! Room was fastidiously clean at all times...Roof top pool/lounge area offered wonderful ambience & amazing views...Never crowded....Just steps to
phenomenal beaches & all the action on the famous Quinta Avienda shopping area...Loved everything about The Illusion & wouldn't hesitate to return
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Favorite new hang-out on the beach @ Fusion...great bar/dining establishment on 6th...Great food ! Great service ! Prices more than reasonable & a live Reggae band most of the week...Just get there early to grab the prime tables right in the sand & watch the surf come in ! An absolute postcard setting !
