The views, are of course stunning, breathtaking, hypnotizing almost. It was the unexpected wildlife that put this place over the top. We had binoculars and could easily see the family of howler monkeys jump from branch to branch. All kinds of birds would fly right by the pool and hang out on the palm tree beside it. We could spy surfers catching waves on the beach below. The room was huge (villa 1) and had a great view as well. We opted for the BBQ dinner with fish. It was delicious and a lot of food. I've been to out of the way places were luxury and ammenities had to be sacrificed for the location. Not here, they had it all, including tasty cocktails. Roger was not just friendly but amazingly helpful and gave us good "short cut" directions for the next part of our trip. The drive ended up being one of the highlights of our time in Costa Rica. I'll be back.
