We are a family of five, and we spent three glorious days at La Palapa. The grounds were extraordinarily well kept. If you woke up early enough, you could hear and (if your lucky) see the keel billed toucans perch in the tall trees above the pool every morning (we heard them but sadly, never saw them). There was also a trail through the forest that lead up to a good lookout point where there are two unused houses and a great view of the palm fields and the ocean. The room we had was HUGE and luxurious, and surprisingly really affordable. The food was great - a different home-cooked meal every time. The dessert (I forgo the name), which had an amazing combination of caramel, whipped cream, coffee-dipped cookies, and who knows what other goodness, was possibly the best we had ever had! The pool in front of the thatched-roofed reception/restaurant was really nice - especially at night. Between the great hospitality, the peaceful quiet location, and the cleanliness/beauty of the property, it couldn't have been better. We had a WONDERFUL time!
