          The views here are stellar, looking out over the mountains and across to the ocean & beaches. The individual houses are wonderful. It is very peaceful and the personal chef just added to the whole experience. We absolutely loved it here!

          We are travelling the second half of August 2015. Our agent said chefs and cleaning service are only available in winter months. What will we do for food? Are there on-site restaurants? How far to drive to outside restaurants? Are rooms cleaned? There will be 5 of us travelling.

          Booked direct with the resort. Very easy and responsive service. Look up the seasons in CR, rainy season isn't terrible (we've been on separate occasion and still enjoyed it) but most prefer spring/summer months! 😊
