Beyond the fact that this is a gorgeous resort, the staff here make it outstanding. Lorenzo greeted us when we arrived and saw to any requests we had. It's evident that he is very experienced in hospitality and seeing to every detail. The entire staff are extremely attentive, helpful and contagiously friendly. I can't say enough about their restaurant and bar. I stayed here 4 nights and dined in their restaurant for lunch and dinner. The cuisine is world class! The chef, Gavin, is one one of the best anywhere!
The views are spectacular and I watched the sunsets from the bar every evening. I also went snorkeling in front of the resort and captured some great photographs of their resident turtle.
The grounds are beautifully landscaped and maintained as well. I stayed in the Dragonfly cottage and the rooms were very clean with all the comforts of home...internet, large flat screen TV, full kitchen...I really hated to leave this beautiful place. I'm already planning my return trip!
