This was one of the best "tropical" vacations my family and I have ever had, and we are planning to come back next year! The photos on the website really do not do this property justice. It is gorgeous. The living space is ample for a family of four (each of our teenage sons had their own room and bathroom), and you can lie in the king size bed in the master bedroom and see the ocean directly in front of you (as well as to the side) via the large picture window. The grounds are meticulously well-kept, and private (the pool, hottub, and palapya are tucked away from view). But more importantly, the service is outstanding. The meals were very good, always served on time, the order was always accurate. The staff is very friendly, pays attention to every little detail, and go out of their way to anticipate your every need. The security is excellent, this is a gated commuity with a security guard, and a security guard also patrols the grounds all evening (we felt completely safe). We have traveled all over the Carribean, usually renting villas, and so far this is our favorite in terms of the "total experience." There is a lot to do in the area. We took a private tour of Chichen Itza, and did a full day "Mayan Jungle Adventure" with Alltournative Tours. Both outstanding. We can't wait to come back.
