My partner, best friend and I checked in March 6th 2014 and stayed for a total of three nights and I think we really lucked out and picked the perfect place to stay.
You get an entire "cabana" (a mini house) for an extremely reasonable price, they give maid service, there is a kitchen, hot water etc. The property is amazing as its a sugar cane farm. There is a great look out to watch the sunset. They also grow their own, bananas, plantains, coffee, fruit... etc etc etc so breakfast which is VERY cheap for what you get is amazing. I think it was some of the best food I had on our trip and I still crave the cheese she makes... One option was Pancakes with fruit, homemade syrup, home grown honey, home grown coffee, a platter of fruit, fruit juice, cheese... I almost didn't need to eat lunch and it def. sustained us though our hikes.
The cabanas are very quiet and a good distance from each other to ensure privacy. There is a bus that comes around and picks you up and drives you to various booked tours for free which Raina will arrange for you.
Raina is very nice, welcoming and helpful...never made us feel like we were intruding. Lots of bird watching on the property (Motmot, Tucan, humming birds) .... ask for a tour of the plantation its really great you get to try fresh sugar cane juice and you get to see the pet Agouti!
In short I think its a great place for couples, friends or families. I would def. want to stay here again.
