Want to get away into a tropical paradise and feel like its really your Place? Then this is the place for you. I went for a 2 week stay, chose banana because after reading a little about colin and Roberto and some of Colin's helpful advice about travel to Costa Rica, I felt a comfort and confidence about them. I was right on the mark.
I started what seemed was going to be the worst vacation, delayed flight, missed connection, arrived to late for my rental, unsettling trip to a not so comfy motel, flat on the rental, mixed directions, ariving late at night and in a tropical storm with only the internet advice from colin about the road. I made it was so well recieved, instantly felt like I had arrived at my favorite aunts house and my bedroom was all made up. I stayed in the Garden suite, pretty cool, not the high up ocean view but a cool room with a giant garden tub and on my first night I even had a huge frog visiting the garden.
I'm not going to say this is the ritz, so if you want room service a 5 star resort w conciere and bell hops, good luck anywhere on the carribean side. This place is like staying with the most gracious and caring friends you have. Although as far as the conciere, no place I've ever been, and thats quite a few, have I ever found anyone more able to find what you want, or suggest a better time, book any activity and make your stay so easy and accomidating as colin, and his wonderful staff.
Thanks so much and I'll se ya in Dec
