This is a wonderful spot, with great views and less severe weather than the coast. I recommend you take one of the free-standing villas, as they have great outdoor space.
The staff here are first rate. They learn your name, and address you personally the next time they see you. I had a phone call to my room while I was having breakfast, they tracked me down and brought the cordless phone to my table.
Food is very good and reasonable. Arroz con pollo and an amazing pumpkin/coconut pie thing were my faves.
