“Paradise Retreat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We highly recommend this spot for those looking for scenic R&R. You've essentially got access to a private beach, beautiful individual lodges with outdoor showers, a wicked common area/restaurant/bar with a massive well-kept pool table, all tastefully done. Bettina and Ismael, you really outdid yourselves with this place, no detail left unthought, no expense spared. We especially enjoyed the island-hopping excursion. Wow! And lunch on that tiny little island! Fun in the sun and in the water, combined with massages, really if you're looking for a getaway that's not been tainted with tourism, do yourself a favour!

Room Tip: There are few lodges and so there isn't a wrong choice here. They're all spectacular, beach...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We stayed four nights in early 2013. The hotel had just recently opened (we were told). The beach was really nice, and service was also quite good - friendly and attentive - but what really got me was the showers: good pressure and hot water!!! It was a welcomed relief after a few weeks of backpacking. No doubt, great value.

We just stayed here for a week and had an amazing vacation. Bettina was such a wonderful host and we had an active but extremely relaxing and serene vacation. If you want to learn to kite surf, you have to come here!

I stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend and it was perfect. Even though they were just openning, everything was finished and very well run.

The grounds are perfect for lounging and enjoying the sea or swimming pool, the rooms are extra large with more amenities than you would expect in such a remote location and we really enjoyed the food. The owner made customized dishes for us in the evenings and each one was incredible. When we arrived, they promised we would relax and eat well, they were right!!! We only stayed in a couple other resorts on this trip but I think its a good value.
I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are practically beachfront but the beachfront rooms (slightly more expensive) have...
