I absolutely loved this resort! It was charming, quaint, and away from the hustle and bustle of Antigua. When we entered the grounds, it was like, "ahhh!" You really feel like you've arrived somewhere extraordinary; it's like you are on another planet - peaceful, serene, with immaculately manicured grounds. The estate is sprawling, set pretty far back from the town, with multiple checkpoints to control who enters and exits. The clientele are upscale versus the backpackers you see in town. It's like its own town really, with a coffee plantation. And we awoke to its smell each morning, a real experience.
The staff were wonderful - very helpful and accomodating. It's a boutique hotel, so only has a handful of rooms. You really feel waited on. No one ever told us no - made shuttle arrangements without notice; and the bar stayed open after hours to serve us food and drinks. English was a struggle, but shame on us for not knowing more Spanish.
The room was huge and bathroom adorable. There was a fireplace and blackout blinds, plus a large balcony overlooking the pool. The pool was deserted most days and just picturesque.
I saw that some members complained about the noise from the tours, but we didn't notice it at all. We partook in some of the tours and being on-site made it even more convenient. Honeslty, other than the price (it is higher than most places in Antigua), I can't imagine why anyone would stay anywhere else.
