We visited here a couple years ago,( in March 2010). The resturant owners are super nice and generous people. They only serve a choice of one meal, but it's very yummy! You defiantly get a taste of thier culture! The atmosphere is beautiful and peaceful! It was a lovely experience with friends and family :)

We've been here twice, just for a quick stop for a beer. The owner, a transplanted Mexican/Texan, is a delightful woman, who loves her resort. Sadly, she says business has been very slow recently and she has had to scale back considerably, including closing the butterfly house we enjoyed two years ago.
