We really enjoyed our time on the island! The property is very nice, well kept. We enjoyed the convenient location, in "La Gloria" area. Note this is (happily) outside the tourist zone. Small convenience store one block up and a decent grocery store a few blocks away. Slept very well on the great mattress. Leti (housekeeper) kept things up for us nicely. Enjoyed watching the day come to life on the front porch facing the ocean. Our shower was slow to heat and low pressure - we didnt mind too much and just informed the owners so they could repair after our stay. They included contact info for repairs needed during your stay but we did not feel the need to use them.
Joyce was very prompt with communications and very detailed with instructions - nice.
All of the recommendations in Joyce's guest information packet were spot on, very helpful to have! Such good food on the island - ceviche at Playa Tiburon, shrimp at Cafe Limon and lobster at Hotel Rolandi - we will miss it!
We both agreed our favorite place/time was at Punta Sur (south end of isle), breakfast overlooking the bay and then exploring the sculpture garden and pathways around the point.
Sincerely, Craig & Karen M
