This property is a series of cabin style accomodations; some have two guest suites, and others just one. The setting is jungle-by-the-sea and we absolutely loved it. The manager and some staff were there to greet the tour bus we were on, with gift trinkets attached to our room keys, and a cocktail in the lobby.
The cabins have kitchenettes and sitting area, separate from the bedroom and bath. In the morning we awaken by thriving wildlife, including monkeys that were as interested in us as we were in them. You can walk down a staircase to the beach that is secured by a locked gate, for the security of the guests. It is indeed a lovely beach, with rough surf and cliffs.
We were quite happy with the dinner and breakfast we were served buffet style. When you travel with a tour group, often times this is your only option for meals, yet the Lodge provided an abundance of fresh offerings.
High rise hotels and room service and spas are nice sometimes, but getting back to nature is amazing as well.
