We stumbled upon this gem thanks to a Groupon Travel Deal and were continually amazed with each passing day. This is an authentic environment with Toucans, Monkeys, Hawks, Parrots and Lizards en masse in the surrounding jungles of the property and sometimes on your balcony. It's a nature lover's paradise and the staff is utterly contented to assist your whims, be those a massage in their spa or custom ordering off their room service menu.
They are famous for their sunset view, which ranks as a top 3 I've ever personally watched (although the overly dramatic Yanni music could be muted for an equally stunning experience). The beach is only really available by tram, which is free and runs frequently throughout the day, but it seems to have a last call a bit too early. However, their beach consists of a cliff overlooking shallow slick rocks, so not traditional but if you go there for the beach then you're just being stingy about not wanting to shell out for Tortuga Island or another trip to a "real" beach. Take in Manuel Antonio Park if you get a chance, it's a bit of a drive, but the concierge will arrange everything and you won't be disappointed. This is a truly romantic spot, so live it up and enjoy the indulgence.
