I'd been dreaming about visiting Morgan's Rock for three years, ever since I read an article about it. We finally had our chance to visit over New Year's, and it was exactly what I hoped for. The beach is gorgeous and practically isolated. We walked all the way to the left on the beach at low tide and found a... More

This place is even more beautiful than the website conveys. The natural setting is stunning. You may have the beach almost to yourself. Delicious fresh food, but leave time for a very slow paced and leisurely meal. The tree houses have a stunning view of the beach, but that's because they are high up so be prepared for a lot...

We arrived at Morgan's Rock after staying at a $20/night hostel on the beach about 3 hours north and so it felt super luxurious to land here for Christmas. Our room was a little casita - all open air with screens and tremendous private view of the ocean. Running hot water was exciting for us and the swinging bed on... More

Imagine a fully booked resort so private that a place on the beach, at the pool, or in the restaurant never feels crowded. That was our Christmas week experience at Morgan's Rock. A physically beautiful resort created within a rain forest filled with howler monkeys, birds and wildlife, built with complete respect of the land. The sleeping cabin was completely... More

We arrived at MR after leaving Aqua Wellness Resort because of a destination wedding there that we were uninformed about. Aqua, to their credit, refunded us for the night we spent there, and we moved on to MR at the last minute. We were the only ones staying there and had this amazing beach and park like setting all to... More

If you truly want to check out, relax and be "one with nature" - go here. Bungalows are built in to the rainforest and have screened walls, so your vacation soundtrack is the soothing sound of the ocean, tropical birds and occasional howler monkeys. There are bugs yes, but you're in the rain forest! The service and food (all from... More

Highlights: The most amazing private beach, well-maintained cabinas with stunning views, great food and service. It is very expensive, but you get what you pay for. I would recommend this to my rich friends.
