Beautiful property, wonderful views, and even more amazing people! The room was spacious, bed was comfortable with comfy pillows and linens. We even had an ocean view from the balcony. The rooftop pool and hang out area is a beautiful place to watch the sunset or just take a sip to cool off. We also walked through some of the trails to the other secluded beaches around the property. Meals were delicious and filling, coffee was incredible and the little market in town has everything you could want or need. Oooohhhh and the spa! We got a salt rock massage that was one of the most incredible massages I’ve ever experienced. Don’t hesitate to book this hotel, you won’t be disappointed!

Loves: Front Desk and concierge. Answered all our COVID questions and set up our COVID testing on-site A . This took a lot of stress out of the trip. Valet was available 24/7. Clean comfy room. Beach/Pool towels provided. Private beach Nit-picks: Shower floor not graded correctly. We had to make towel dams to prevent the flooding of the bathroom. Pool lounge chairs very uncomfortable (no padding/hard wood even with multiple towels) Water at beach not clear enough to snorkel (probably a seasonal thing). No ladder on swim platform Dislikes: No lounge chairs/umbrellas for use on the beach. Pool closes at 6pm. Limited dining options/close early. No later service even for drinks/finger food.

We loved the view from the pool terrace and the hospitality from the staff was amazing. It would have been nice to have a mini-fridge in the room.

It’s s spectacular place, with mountain and beach combination. And them they have biking trails and hiking trails and some water games that you want to do. Beautiful
