I am an avid traveler and try to verify my splurges in multiple books and websites. This time, all the researching really let me done and the only conclusion that I can come to is that the people writing the reviews just accepted the owners arrogant boasting at Face Value. First, it is secluded so they gouge you on everything possible, especially drinking water (charging you five times what the water would cost in the town of Las Islas). The food is terrible and expensive, the rooms are dingy and have poor running cold water showers. But if that is how you like to spend $300 a night (and trust me, I went to drinking tap water and eating 2 small meals a day and it still came out to $300 a night) than this is the place for you. But if you expect a comfortable bed and real pillows and a decent shower and drinking water than by all means, avoid this place!!!
