We were here for our honeymoon. At the time, the hotel was just changing over from a Sheraton. The construction to the pool and the private villas was going on, but we hardly noticed.
Our room was beautifully appointed. It was wonderful to sit on tha balcony and watch monkeys going by! Love the decor and often made use of the soaker tub. Great selection of teas, also.
The buffet was EXCELLENT and there was such good variety that we never tired of it like can happen. Wonderful fruit.
The gift shop in the lobby had great selection and was really reasonably priced -after walking into town a few times and checking thing out, I admit I got a lot of souvenirs right at the hotel.
My husband and I had a tandem massage at the spa which was great (our first time). Felt very pampered.
This resort has lots of little places to go hang out, chairs on the beach and along the jungle path... really great.
Also, in the lobby they had a little library area where you could take a book or leave behind books you had brought and finished. We read A LOT. It was relaxing and wonderful.
