We were travelling a couple of friends and were actually supposed to be on a budget backpacking trip. When we stumbled upon this hotel somewhere online we decided to spend a little extra money than planned to treat ourselves (even though I know it's still a fairly cheap place to stay).
The room was spotless and the green hotel grounds were very beautiful and idyllic. Lots of hammocks and lying chairs for relaxing. The place has no pool but the small tidal pool was way cooler and there's also a small river kind of pool next to the hotel.
The staff was incredibly nice. Ami was great and very helpful in recovering our bags which Delta Airlines lost. She made sure they were sent to our next location on our trip.
The night watch (I forgot his name) was the best! Even though he didn't speak any English and my Spanish is pretty poor, we had some nice conversations about Elton John and other music when he wasn't doing his rounds :) He just seemed like such a nice guy.
Small tip: Don't try to hike both waterfalls in flip flops, if you take the long way to the top one... :) Wear shoes!
