Looking back at photos from my trip in August of last year with my 28 yr old daughter made me remember I'd not ever posted my review!!! My ex & I started going to Shangri La back in early '80s. Visited the original Capitan Lafitte only. Over the years went back 5 times with kids.
Was desperately seeking that same feel if a hidden away resort but alas Shangri La was now some huge resort with a million people on the beach!! Thank God Turqouise Reef Group was still around to send us to Capitan Lafitte!!!!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this place!!! Secluded, beautiful, amazing staff who treated us like family, great food... Heavenly!!! We rented a cabana closest to the ocean... Nightly the waves lapping against the shore serenaded us to sleep! Each morning we awoke to the sunrise and beautiful, peaceful uncrowded beach!!! Just like we experienced 30 yrs ago!
We didn't know if we could find that same exclusive & unique place like we had yrs ago but we did!!! It was fabulous & will return for sure as long as they stay their unique & exclusive selves! You have to try it!!!!
