If you are looking for a secluded get-away spot, this is sooooo it. Beautiful scenery, peaceful surroundings, and nice accomodations. This is not luxury, this is Ahhhhhhh, relax. Rooms are comfortable, clean, free of bugs and other creepy crawlies. Hot water, and cieling fan. No TV, no radio, no AC, none needed. The pool is great and the food is wonderful. Also, there are great PR Cuisine rests., within a stone's throw away. Hiking trail on the property, and the Dos Bocas and Caonillas lakes a nearby, the former surrounded by great restaurants which you can get to by boat and enjoy the ride on the Dos Bocas lake. The staff is excellent, and fully bilingual. Cel phone reception is non existent, which makes it easier to truly disconnect. There is WiFi service at the main restaurant and reception area but it is slow and drops constantly, but again its great for the disconnect of everyday hustle and bustle. Definately recommend, and will visit again sooooooon!!!! This sleepless beachcomber was truly at peace with this place.
