As I sit here writing this review after a soothing nap helped by the sound of gently breaking waves and tropical birds I feel as though we're the only couple here. It's like having your own private tropical island with all the benefits you'd expect the super rich to have.
My wife took a wonderful few hours to hike through the wildlife rich jungle only to find our own private beach with nobody else around.
Although it's relatively close to the mainland you feel very removed from the outside world. The food is delicious and the staff could not be more attentive and friendly. It's the best lodge of this kind that I've found in Central and South America and it's on par with the best of this kind that I've experienced in Asia and Africa.
If you're looking for a luxury private tropical getaway that isn't cheesy with plenty to do go here!
