I have been staying at the Hotel from L'aldea for 5 nights in a really great, comfortable and new room. Actually i was one of the first guests to this newly build Hotel, witch consists of only 12 rooms witch are in the middle of a tropical forest with a lot of amazing animals.
And this was my first encounter with the island, and the Caribbean itself. What a great first start it was to this amazingly friendly island. I was so tried from the flight when I arrived, I was shown to my room by the owner. The room I got was a big luxurious second floor room with a balcony, hammock and a view to remember. After I have seen my room i was lead by the owner to the bar, where I met Natashja the Restaurant manager, she made my first cocktail at L'aldea.
I had a very warm welcome and went after this good cocktail to sleep. I actually in a long time haven't been sleeping that well like in this amazing kingsize bed. Due to my jetlag I got up at 3 am and walked around the big hotel and restaurant premisses. This was an astonishing experience at night. I even met Ralph, the guardian dog. Actually I bumped into him at night in a very dark place and the was so friendly and lovely.
In the morning i got every time a nice breakfast with custom made eggs and fresh juice. This was a great start in the day and lasted till the evening.
When I got to the front desk I was offered to join the tour through Amazonia, the rainforest garden of L'aldea for free. This was an amazing tour with Maria one of the Tour-guides witch did an amazing job explaining everything. 160 species of animals and so many plants I can't even name them all. It was just incredible. I even joined the tour for several times and took a lot of incredible pictures. What a great deal to go to this Hotel. The pool is good, the rooms fancy, the staff is just the best.
Now coming to the restaurant, holy crap, I never had that good meat before. The picania is that amazing, i couldn't resist eating there every night. They have a awesomely big salad bar, and a big variety of the best meet on the island. Outstanding is definitely the restaurant manager Natashja. She just took over the place a few weeks ago and is running it like a longtime pro.
And if you visit you have too try the cocktails made by Hugo the bartender. Probably in the top 3 of the island. Also just amazing. And try the cocktail named "DC", it is just WOW!
All over it is a place to be. Just to be, relax and enjoy.
