My family (me, my husband, two pre-teens and mother-in-law) had a great time staying here. We stayed for 6 nights. It is a very relaxed and down to earth place. The pool and deck are are beautiful. The meals are delicious and affordable. The rooms are simple and clean. The grounds are lovely and the staff is super nice. We felt like we found a home away from home. There is a lot to do in the area too - we went zip lining, surfing, took a boat cruise, checked out monkeys in the nearby forest and explored the local beaches. We would have done more but we ran out of time! Harold was a terrific host - he answered our many, many questions both before and after we arrived, hooked us up with excellent activity providers, took us to see the monkeys and was a pleasure to hang out with. The place also attracts a really nice group of guests - people like us who are happy to be away from the big commercial hotels and tourist traps and who are interested in a more authentic experience. If you stay here, I recommend you rent a 4x4 so you can visit the more remote beaches in the area - they are so extraordinarily beautiful! It is an easy drive from the airport in Liberia - it took us about an hour - the roads were paved and it was very simple to navigate using Google Maps.
