This place can be very expensive (at least when I went) and it really isn't worth the money. It would be had the food and service been better. The rooms: spectacular. Probably the coolest hotel rooms I'll ever stay in. They are clean, well thought out, and have an amazing view. Our cabin had a large comfortable bed, two fans... More

Thank you for great input, Robert. We are happy you enjoyed your bungalow and our food. Service can always be better, and we´re always looking to improve in this area, so your idea of pen and paper for waiters is one to really consider. Our activities have an extra cost as we have to maintain our items and keep them... More

Our family visited Morgan's Rock in March, two adults and two children (age 12 and 10). We could not have been happier. I will state up front that having the right expectations going in are very important, but we did a large amount research before deciding to travel there, and our expectations were more than satisfied. First off, the property... More

Thank you for your kind comments, Kevin. Your family seemed to have a great time enjoying our amenities and the small things that add value to your Ecolodge. The secluded beach and immense Property was definitely taken advantage. And those ¨room visitors¨ are harmless and add a special touch of nature to your stay. We do hope you come back! More

Our family visited Morgan's Rock in March 2014, two adults, two children, (ages 8 and 6). The location was more isolated than what we had expected, but this turned out to be a positive as there was really no need to leave the property. The grounds are vast and there is a lot to do without having to go off... More

The rooms here are outstanding. Absolutely beautiful and can't be faulted. Housekeeping also spot on. Overall though we felt that the staff needed a little shake up or a "visit" from the owners as service was a bit lacklustre. It seemed to boil down to daily tips and only if you were tipping did you get a smile and better... More

Thank you so much for your thoughtful post. We will most definitely take your recommendations regarding tipping into account for our daily operations. You have a very valid point that tipping at the end is preferred. We are also glad that you enjoyed our bungalows and had a great time fishing. More

Beautiful location in the middle of the jungle and on the beach. Very nice and accommodating staff. All inclusive with great food and drinks. You have your choice the private beach, the infinity pool, strolls through the jungle with monkeys, kayaking in the mangroves, horse back riding, you name it you can do it. Beautiful bungalows. Seriously heaven.

Thank you for your kind comments. We do have a little bit of everything for everyone to enjoy. The beach and pool are great for fun in the sun, while the rain forest and estuary are amazing to explore. The best is to explore them all! More

Visited this property on a ship's tour. It is far from town along a dusty road, so plan on staying if you choose this property. It would be impractical to go in and out, as for dinner at a restaurant in town. The property itself is attractive and it is a short walk down a well-maintained trail to a lovely... More

Thank you for your day visit! Our guests normally stay between 3 to 6 nights. Day trips are uncommon, but worth the trip nonetheless. We hope you can have a longer stay with us during your next trip to Morgan´s Rock. More

Stayed 3 nights and didn't leave the property (this place is remote) Wife, girls (8 and 6) and I went to MR last month and had a wonderful time. While quite remote, the property is beautiful. Service is great (staff/guest ratio is at least 1:1) and the food was excellent. The bungalows are well appointed, though it is an eco-lodge... More

Family vacations always end well at Morgan´s Rock. Every member enjoys something different, and they all go on tours, like you did with the Kayaking and the Breakfast at the Farm tour. We will tell Evaristo you send your best. Thank you for your post and for choosing Morgan´s Rock for your family vacation. More

My 6-year old son and i visited Morgan's Rock and were not disappointed by our adventure. Everything from the wildlife to the people was just as we hoped it would be. The resort is very clear that there will be a lot of walking/stairs and we were prepared for that. The beach is just amazing, very private with a lot... More

We had an unforgettable family reunion at Morgans Rock. If you love appreciating nature, but in the comfort of a simple but artistically-done bungalow with good food and fresh fruit drinks, than this is the place for you. There is no air conditioning (just fans and breeze) and nothing but screens around your room, but I found the sound of... More

We appreciate you choosing Morgan´s Rock for your family reunion. It is an amazing place where families can spend good quality time, but at the the same time venture off to do their own things.

I really tried hard to love this place... Unfortunately 1) the food is uninspiring. 2) It was very hard to sleep due to deafening waves that sounded like a tsunami at 2AM. 3) They toot their horns about it being "eco" - but the reforestation is happening because they are the ones chopping down the rich jungle for their furniture...

Thank you for your comments. The reforestation efforts began in 1998 when everything you saw during you stay was flat grounds used for cattle. The Owners have planted over 2 million trees since then, where lost habitats are alive once again. Many of the ingredients from the Restaurant come from the farm and sea, but there are some items we... More
