Where do I start? This hotel is lovely. My family had an ocean front room and loved everything about it. Listening to the ocean at night is so relaxing. The sliding door to the outdoor patio does not have a screen so you can't sleep with the door open, but you can still hear the ocean. The room was clean and comfortable. We had a room on the top floor and for two nights during our visit we were awakened by howler monkeys fighting/playing on the roof. It would have really been awful except it was kind of remarkable to be woken up by howler monkeys. They sleep in the surrounding trees through the day. The garden and pool area is beautiful. One thing we didn't really enjoy was the food in the restaurant. It was average at best, although we really did like the buffalo wings a lot. The restaurants/bars down on the beach from the hotel are really good (We really enjoyed Aqua Sport a lot). If the food was better, I would have given this hotel 5 stars. The hotel's beach area has lounge chairs to use and the staff takes drink orders while you are relaxing. All four of us had messages on the beach during our visit and we really enjoyed them. After a day of snorkeling and hiking, the messages were much needed. One of the true gems of this hotel is its staff. They are phenomenal and their service is exceptional. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. My family was attending a wedding at the hotel and we had a great time. From the wedding, social hour, dinner, reception, to the fire pit on the beach after the festivities were over, the event couldn't have gone better. As for our visit, the only thing I would change would be to not take the horseback ride excursion the hotel offers. Repeat, do NOT take this tour. We felt so sorry for the fly covered horses and we didn't see any wildlife during the whole trip. Even with the totally disappointing horseback excursion, our experience with the hotel was wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again or host a family event there!
