This is my second visit to Hacienda Elena. This time we brought our grandson who, when not out to the PV restaurants, adventures etc., couldn't be dragged out of the heated pool (one of two). The rooms are spacious with each one with it's own distinctive design. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and feature several patios.There is a nice view of the harbor, river and jungle. The staff are outstanding.
To sum up, it is hard to leave this place behind to return to our comparatively drab home.
