Our room was upgraded(we still don't know why), to a room with a waterfall and pool right outside our door. The staff went out of the way to be helpful and friendly. Carlo gave me a bag of coffee...

Amazing location. You are surrounded by wildlife. We saw sloths, capuchin monkeys and iguanas (all poolside). Everyday around 4pm there were capuchin monkeys coming round looking for mangos. Loads of good photo opportunities The views from the restaurant are awesome. Good spread as well. We upgraded to a suite beds really comfy and we had a Jacuzzi and a balcony.... More
