Althought at the beginning of the rainy season, we had to take the long way there, the shortcut being already not usable with a car. Pretty long way. Like the other said, just an amazing view! The staff were all so nice, althought I wish I would have seen more smiles...thumbs up to Randy from the beach restaurant who brought sand toys from his house for my son because the hotel didn't have any! Wonderful bar man at the bar not the beach. I also regretted that my kids could only use the pool down by the beach. It is so far from the rooms, at least a 10 minutes walk. We cannot leave them to get something in the room, so we have to plan for a whole day at the beach. That's not good. The room was absolutely beautiful. We had the 22 and the kids, number 18. Th first days we had no neighbours, but when they arrived, we could very easily ear all their night activities and their TV. Activities were very expensive. Too bad since we are kind of stuck there because of the distance. We golfed and the kids did the surfing lesson. The teacher was just ok. He refused to book a second course at the last minute the day after, saying he was to tired ( at 2 in the after noon!) I consider the food average. We stayed at the Marriott Los Suenos a couple day before and it was way better for the same price. The fruits weren't really good comparing to what we had before in Costa Rica. All the fish and seafood were way too cook. The shrimp almost seemed like frozen ones.The heat was unbearable in the gym and some machines didn't work properly.
But we have seen a lot of animals on the site ( more than a douzain in flying macaw) and the view!!! A couple of days were great, but enough.
