Beautiful location next to Pacific Ocean. Great private beach. The condominium was very nice and concierge was extremely helpful. Rooms were on three different levels. The porch had a hot tub with fantastic views of the sunset over the Pacific. Abundant wildlife including monkeys, macaws, sloths and parrots.

We had a fabulous time. Thoroughly recommended. The staff were all very helpful. Only caution I'd say is that it's very hilly, but the staff go out of their way to lay on transport to help get around the site
