Judging by some of the other reviews, it seems a lot of people were disappointed with this resort. Well, if you are expecting constant hands-on attention and lavish service like more and more linens every day and your napkin laid in your lap, then this isn't the place for you.
However, if you do enjoy the simplicity of a charming cabana on the beach with cathedral ceilings, a ceiling fan, walls painted bright tropical colors and covered with central american tapestries and art, then this may be the place for you. To boot, you get a very attentive staff who by the end of the trip feel like family. The restaurant food is unbelievable. The bartenders are super friendly. And everything has that very casual, laid back feeling.
Every morning, you can traipse out of your cabana (bare foot if you'd like) and waltz straight into the kitchen for a cup of coffee or tea. And then a few moments later, one of the staff will bring you a big plate of eggs, bacon, or maybe an omelet, with some fruit. and you get to eat this all from the veranda overlooking the beach and the water with nobody else around. because at most, there can only be 6 guests at this resort.
at night things do liven up because of the infamous restaurant. which besides providing great food, gave me and my traveling companion the opportunity to meet some great and interesting people. and the kitchen closes at 9pm, so people disperse rather quickly after that, leaving you to sleep peacefully in your little cabana on the beach.
As for all those comments about the water, we didn't experience that problem. there was a tiny, tiny, tiny bit of sulphur smell, but we brushed our teeth with it, took nice warm showers in it, and believe me, nobody and nothing smelled.
If you're the fussy type, don't go to this resort. If you want to be laid back, meet interesting people and enjoy the simplicity of life. then this is the place for you.
