An oasis on a hot summer visit. We were Upgraded to a Villa and treated like Royalty. Have stayed here before and came back because our first visit was also wonderful. Hopefully we can soon make three a charm.

We have stayed in this resort several times in past. Make sure you talk to real person about type of room you are interested in. Great restaurants near by. Golf course is very good. We think food outside the hotel is as good if not better!!

Perfect place for a get away. Wonderful accommodations and staff. Wildlife on grounds--a treat. Casitas gave a sense of privacy over a regular hotel room. Be prepared to walk or take the provided shuttles, it is spread out. Suggest the spa pool (No kids) over the family pool if you can. Very nice, relaxing, and beautiful view.

Great views and location is perfect. We had a view of the golf course and the room was newly renovated. The service was very good and we enjoyed some evenings at the bar which provided great food and drinks along with excellent service.

Excellent Hotel and Value we always have a relaxing time when we visit. I would highly recommend visiting this property! The views are amazing, the food is excellent and very relaxing. We enjoy going for a walk along the pathways and looking at the beautiful homes that are along the golf course. Great for couples retreat or families...
