My husband I just returned from Popa Paradise, where we celebrated our 3rd anniversary, and we can't say enough wonderful things about it! Dyllan went out of his way from day one to help us get to the resort and made sure we had anything and everything we needed once we arrived.
The resort itself is breathtaking and the perfect combination of jungle and beach. There are tons of things to do once you arrive and the staff is so helpful in recommending excursions. We kayaked, snorkeled at Zapatilla, did the cave excursion, and roamed around the island. At the end of the day we would lounge in the pool and enjoy the swim up bar and the company of the staff. The food was AMAZING! Darion is ridiculously creative and we looked forward to seeing what he would prepare for each meal. The food exceeded our expectations in every way!
The staff are FABULOUS!! Pete picked us up from the airport and was very friendly and helpful throughout our entire stay. Lena was our bartender and server and is one of the nicest people we have met. Dyllan and Darion are amazing! They are so helpful and friendly and just really good at what they do. Their positive attitude is contagious and Popa runs as well as it does because of them. We felt like we were hanging out with old friends by the end of the trip.
We're already planning our next trip to Popa and we can't wait! I can't imagine any "normal" person writing a bad review of this place because it really is a hidden gem and we were lucky to have found it.
