This is my wife and my second stay at Bluff Beach Retreat. Our first stay was so fantastic it was when, not if, we would return. Off the beaten path but with amenities so nice you can't help but make jokes about it. Limes for the drinks come from their own farm in the jungle, lettuce, veggies and passion-fruits from a local organic farmer. Ron served up steaks, chicken and tofu and everything else our hearts desired. Ron and his wife Christine picked us up from the airport and were great hosts in every way! They gave us tons of fantastic things to do including sending us to Starfish Beach and on a boat ride to Isla Bastimento where we had some insanely good Thai food in the middle of the jungle at Island Time Thai with an amazing view of the bay through the trees.
The location is truly amazing and parrots, monkeys and sloths can sometimes be seen or heard in the trees. The beach right in front of the main house is truly picture perfect and so deserted it will spoil you for life. On our first trip we even saw a turtle nest right in front of the retreat; seeing a huge mound of eggs and the momma's 5-6' wide tracks in and out of the water was worth the air fare alone!
We can't wait to get back for our third stay, maybe in the new honeymoon villa!
