There are not enough nice things to say about this lovely place. It's beautiful, feels like you are way away, but thre's always stuff to do! Our extended family of 10-74 year olds was spoiled and treated like honored guests. The staff is absolutely amazing, especially Patricia, Harold, Christian and Anna in the restaurant and Esteban and Jeffrey in the office. Our entire family did the "romantic" beach dinner for Christmas eve - it was sublime. Ireni is an AMAZING yoga teacher - make sure you try her river yoga class. The grounds are exquisite, with monkeys, iguanas and all sorts of birds. The rooms are lovely and innovative, the pool is great, the food is AWESOME and the walk into town is pleasant. Make sure to check out the turtle sanctuary down the beach - in season, they are releasing baby Olive Ridleys and even Leatherbacks! Also, surfing with Manny of Young Vision is the only way to go!! The only thing I would stay away from is the horseback riding - the outfitters Ylang Ylang is currently working with are not taking care of their horses, who are often lame. The beach ride up to the falls sounds great, but it's actually a hot trudge for you and the horses. Look up El Pinto instead - Marvin is amazing, with happy healthy horses and it's well worth the short trip to him so that you can see the rainforest, and he can also arrange a gorgeous sunset beach ride at Malpais.
