Grounds are beautiful. We stayed in the King size suite. There were endless amounts of huge ants in room coming in from outside. We were supposed to get coffee delivered at a certain time, we had to call for it. when it came it was like weak tea no cream or sugar. Slippers left were not in plastic but heavily... More

We went there for my brother's wedding so the resort was perfect, the view amazing. Excellent food , the service was good and the cabins were beautiful. The only bad thing were the bugs "the pics and mosquitoes " so next time we won't take my baby girl"

Dear Miembro de TripAdvisor: Thank you so much for having taken your time to write a review in TripAvisor. Yes, during the rainy season, normally from mid-September to mid November, we do have more mosquitos in the Nature Reserve. However, they are usually concentrated in the early morning at sunrise and at dusk. The hotel sprays organic Pyrethrin twice daily... More

The facility was lovely and the staff was very nice, but we went in early September and the swarms of biting insects made the place practically uninhabitable. If you are hard core birdwatchers it will be worth it to you to go for the birds and the nature, but otherwise it is not worth it this time of year. I... More

A great choice to get away and relax; the hotel is beautiful, very well run and has all the amenities. The rooms are fantastic, simple yet elegant. Adjacent nature trails are great.

An excellent choice if you prefer a complete get-away from everything and enjoy nature, calmness, purity and quality service, far out from the hustle and bustle of regular tourism. The hotel/resort is beautiful, has everything you need. Quality of the food was excellent. Mojito's made by Victor even better. The quality of the cabaña was excellent. The flamingo tour guide...

If you want to get away from it all, relax, see nature, do yoga, cycle, all in beautiful, tranquil surroundings, this is the place for you.

I am a yoga teacher, who leads a lot of retreats and workshops. A few weeks ago, I decided I needed to 'walk the talk', and take a solo retreat to recharge my batteries and get re-inspired. I knew I had to get to salt water, but I find the Pacific Coast of Mexico a little rough. When I found... More

I really love this place! We arrived after dark following a 10 hour flight and 4 or 5 drive (we were so exhausted that none of us are sure how long it really was). So, waking up in beautiful, peaceful surroundings was magical. One of the first birds I saw was a Mexican Sheartail right in front of our room... More

Apart from the fishing boats in the Gulf of Mexico we appeared to have the sea and beach to ourselves for a large part of the stay. The hotel seemed fairly full but apart from at meals we scarcely saw any of the other guests. It is unlikely they were exploring the local sites because the hotel is good 10km... More

Dear Rick S, Thank you for having posted such a nice review and thank you for considering that I am an energetic owner.
