He sends an email the next day while I am in transit to sign and authorize... More

We even saw monkeys one morning above the pool which was very cool. The... More

We are glad to know that you loved the privacy of our Bungalows and the included breakfast. Sometimes internet is weak, and has to be reported, that is because we are located far away from everything. We wanted to thank you for your nice review, and puntuation. It was great to have here.

Very clean and quiet rooms. I missed breakfast for a fishing trip that the night guard knocked on my door to wake me up. Its not on the beach but just a short walk to the beach. I rented a 4 wheel quad for a day and had an experience of a lifetime.
