I stayed at L'Acqua Viva in the rainy season, so we were actually the only guest on site for our stay. I must say the hotel is BEAUTIFUL! The pools are relaxing and the howler monkeys are quite the sound and site! However, the staff is where this hotel really shines. Manuel, the reservation manager was a phenomenal help. Before...

We stayed for 5 nights. I loved it! It was beautiful, and our suite was really nice. I read reviews about it being empty of guests. There were a few other people during the week and got busier on the weekend, but we didn't care whether there were or weren't other people there. The food was really good. Wifi in... More

Beautiful hotel with nice landscaping. Rooms are spacious, clean, huge shower in large bathroom. Refrigerator in room. The hotel is right next to the road (and my room was in one of the buildings next closest to the road). You do hear traffic noise, although I didn't find it offensive, but traffic does start up around 5-5:30am so that could... More
