Upon our arrival (after a long drive) we were met at the door by reception, asked us to sit on the comfortable couch in the lobby. We were brought warm wet wash clothes, and informed us we had been upgraded to a master suite! They took us there in a golf cart and gave us a walk through of the two bedroom suite. Out side the master bedroom in our own private grounds with bushes and flowers, providing the privacy around our own private pool. The master bathroom was impressive as these other reviews have described.
Some of the best part was the beautiful grounds and the variety of flowers, trees etc, which welcomed a wide variety of birds. Each morning we could watch as the scarlet backed tanagers land outside our pool area, and a morning walk around the grounds gave us great birding enjoyment.
If you are a birder, ask reception to contact "Oscar". He guided us on the Hanging Bridges Tour. He is a birder, and offered to take us birding, but we did not have time. He would be delighted to take you birding.
The reception staff was helpful with anything we needed, free shuttle into town on a convenient, schedule, and arranged tours for us as well. Breakfast included, had a very broad variety buffet - from design your own omelet - breads and fresh fruit of coarse, as well as typical local foods.
They did charge an optional $10. extra for wifi in your room, unlimited international calls, coffee and bottled water. The wifi was marginal, sometimes worked , sometimes not so much.
