This place is incredibly unique - however, because of the higher price, I worry that people develop very specific expectations which are hard to meet. In my opinion, here are the things you are paying for: -Bungalows that you will not want to leave - gorgeous, screened in, private, overlooking the water, you hear all the sounds of nature. I'm...

Thank you for your comments, and for being very specific about your stay. We really appreciate it. The bungalows are simply jaw-dropping and one of the best places to sit back and relax. The beach is enormous and the few guests makes it look even bigger. And the pool is definitely a great place to take sun and have some... More

We loved our experience at Morgan's Rock! The staff was exceptional, the views were phenomenal, the accomodations were unique and elegant! How can you beat great food and drink, a pool that never closes, a private beach with great waves, super fun and informative tours, not to mention tons of other fun activity options?!

While June is typically rainy in this region, we were lucky to have four sunny days in a row. Perfect for enjoying the pool and gorgeous beach--which we had almost to ourselves every day. I wondered if I'd long for air conditioning, but the screened-in open air bungalows with fans kept breezes circulating effectively. Loved seeing and hearing the waves.... More

Thank you for your comments. We are very happy that you weren't turned away by the no AC bungalows, and glad that you mentioned that you slept well. Sleeping with the waves underneath is definitely an experience worth while. Road signs have always been a problem with the locals, but were glad you made it to Morgan´s Rock. More

We spent 4 nights at Morgan's Rock and we enjoyed it very much. Great service, friendly staff, good and local food as well as a very nice and special bungalow with breathtaking views. Nice beach and pool and kids were very welcome.

This hotel is overwhelmingly overrated in every regard except for the quality of the rooms. I thought that I had done my homework by reading the 2014 review in the NYT. I could not be more irritated by that author's unbridled enthusiasm. There is a bizarre disconnect between the rustic entrance to this remote ecolodge and the crass chalkboard of... More

Thank you for your post. We also believe our bungalows are amazing, specially with the waves down below to sooth you during sleep. Your comment definitely catches us by surprise due to the circumstances of your reservation. It was a clear misunderstanding, something admitted by your travel companion, that our hotel didn't offer a yoga instructor. We do offer surf... More

What a wonderful vacation. No TVs, no radios, no alarm clocks, no telephones. Just wonderful views and incredible peace. The casitas are screened from floor to ceiling on 3 sides so there are no walls to obstruct the views of the totally private beach. Our own deck with a swing daybed for 2. I commandeered the desk as a make-up... More

Just stayed with husband and teen daughters for 3 nights at Morgan's Rock. We absolutely loved it. We practically had the whole beach to ourselves.

I agree with most of the other comments about Morgan' Rock. The location is incredible and the beach couldn't have been better. The bungalows have fantastic views, and although not air conditioned, the combination of ceiling fans, ocean breezes and the sounds of the surf made it very pleasant for sleeping. There is no wi-fi in the rooms, although it... More

Thank you for your post! The bungalows and beach area are definitely one of our best features. We also would add our Staff and food. We will look into the bar and drinks at the beach service; services we offer throughout the year. The view from the bungalows is definitely worth the small climb. More
