There is a reason that some destinations have more 5-star reviews than anything else...reality doesn't lie and the fact is that this was one of the greatest short vacations I have ever had. From the moment you step out of the SUV onto the property, you are surrounded by smiling, helpful staff who seem to want nothing but to make your stay wonderful. From the monkeys in the trees, the empty beach and the amazing golf course, it is the most intimate of destinations. Not a lot to do other than relax and play some golf. I have a brochure showing an aerial view of the beach and golf course on my dresser so that I can enjoy the memory of such a beautiful place. It really was a spectacular venue and I can't wait to go back.
