The location is stunning - we had our own banda on the beach. The water was lovely as is the property. I felt safe and it was easy to make plans for excursions.
We would have liked them to take credit card. It is expensive and with no ATMs we found two other people who left early to go somewhere that takes credit. We found out we paid double for what we would have paid to stay in the hotel beside us. We felt that prices were not consistent and somewhat arbitrary (we talked with others at the lodge and were surprised by the differences in price).
Nice place, good location, but too expensive considering the competition. For what we were charged all meals should have been included.
