Location is excellent! The proximity to the park and public beach are great! Pools are nice, food is good, staff is pleasant. We did not end up taking any tours-just relaxing on this leg of our trip.
We heard that the villa vainilla your was awesome but they did not have spots open when we tried to book. So book ASAP.
Beware that the Park is closed Mondays so you may want to plan your stay accordingly.
We did see a lot of wildlife at the hotel. Our balcony looked out on a gross looking wetland, but we spent a few hours watching the unusual wildlife there. Snakes in the trees, snakes in the water eating frogs, huge crabs crawling around, massive iguanas in the trees, lizards everywhere. Birds killing snakes... Other guests told us they had seen 4 different species of monkeys from the pool.
I would come back for sure!
