We did an adventure package which included a stay at Villa Beach Cottages and included a car. La Dauphine is exactly what we needed to get away, beautiful grounds all to yourself to roam and explore. We were there during cocoa season and got to watch the process of preparing the beans for drying which was very interesting. We were able to pick fresh mangos that were in season for our meals. The restaurants in the area at the other resorts are kind of pricey. The kitchen is very well stocked with equipment I do suggest that you shop for your food items before you get there. Charles and Antonia are absolutely wonderful and very helpful yet unassuming. We stayed in the Great House which would be perfect for a family or several couples. One thing if you are used to having a TV to watch in the evening there isn't any so take things to do with you. The wrap around porch was perfect for having meals and sitting and relaxing, I absolutely loved the pool and patio. The tree frogs can get kind of loud at night and you will hear them all night since there is no air conditioning, but with the windows open and fans it was perfect. Also you will need to take bug spray. We did the Sulfur Springs and that was so relaxing but don't waste your time doing the volcano tour, also if you enjoy looking at flowers visit the botanical gardens and waterfalls,
