The lodge is the perfect place to escape the hectic world. The hotel is quiet, with excellent staff that are helpful and eager to please. Excellent walking and hiking trails to enjoy and the orchid house is serene and wonderful. The shuttle was helpful and its not too far to walk into town to explore the shops and culture. One drawback is the new policy that you can only enjoy the amenities at each facility- however the pool area at the lodge is relaxing and comfortable.
