We loved this place. The setting is amazing, by far the most beautiful hotel location I have ever stayed at. All the cottages overlook the sea (although the slightly cheaper ones which we had mainly overlook trees), and the entire resort is a tropical dream! The beach is quite small, and because of the relative proximity to the volcano, the sand isn't "Caribbean white" but mixed with black sand. For us this didn't matter as the setting with the rainforest all around was so beautiful, but those looking for long white beaches might be disappointed.The cottages are great and the outdoor showers an exotic touch! We were really impressed with the restaurant, the food was delicious and the wine list very impressive. All the staff were really helpful and you were made to feel very welcome.
This really is a place to get away from it all. Sounds a bit cheesy but it really is as there is very little to do (lie on the beach essentially. or go to the spa!), and because off the state of the roads you probably don't want to venture out after dark. When we were there about 90% of the guests were couples, and it really is very romantic. And quiet. And beautiful. An amazing place!!
