Fantastic & romantic boutique hotel. Loved it from the second we arrived - pictures don't do it justice. All the rooms are private & wonderfully integrated w/ the jungle.
Only 12 or so villas and studios- so very private.
Loved the walk to the beach and running the quiet streets in the morning for exercise.
Monkeys and sloths all over the place.
Pool was amazing. Drinks at pool were great, too. Breakfast is great, as everyone else says, too.
For our last night, Makanda was booked, so we moved to Arenas Del Mar. Down the street from each other. Arenas was nice too but Cheryl different. We preferred Makanda without a doubt.
Walk to town for dinner was very easy. Flashlight in the room - 15 mins tops.
