There are three things that make this hotel an excellent destination (1) the hotel manager (2) the modern installations and (3) the semi-private beach area.
Despite a rocky beginning with a blackout and confusion about room arrangements, we soon fell in love with this spot. The food was excellent, the staff bent over backwards to please my parents and husband and I, and there’s no more perfect oasis from which to enjoy a few days of relaxation.
We found charm in the oxen that would pass in front of the hotel to drink from the lake; in the howler monkeys that roared to life in the morning; and the exotic birds that nested in the property’s trees.
Carved out of an old farm house, the hotel can be described as modest luxury, with cozy hammocks and high-quality furniture.
You have to give kudos to the owners – who deal with frequent black outs (due to an inadequate government power plant) and all the complications of living on an island in a third world country – to bring such a wonderful vacation experience. I’d pass up any day at the Marriott or Intercontinental hotel for a night at Finca San Juan.
