Guarded grounds at the end of the road, greeted by a security guard to insure you belong on the property. Hotel staff greeted with fresh lemon towel and refreshing fresh fruit drink. check in went smooth even though we arrived several hours prior to check in. We walked the grounds and explored the two rain forest trails ON the property. The room was nice and comfortable the first few nights. The Air Conditioner fan broke and we were moved to another room. The rain forest animals are ALL around.... What a great experience. The restaurant breakfast was a buffet style with local flair, fresh fruit and fresh fruit juices. The lunch and dinner menus at the La Galeria (only one open during the green season, however the other restaurant menus were available) was varied and on the upper end of the scale. The restaurant staff were very attentive (especially Erik, who made the dining time more enjoyable) The views from the outside dining area were spectacular. All the staff are there to make your stay the most memorable as possible. While the hotel is away from the towns, a short taxi ride or hotel shuttle was no problem to get around. The "private" beach was a short walk through a trail, I will take private above public anytime. This is truly a remarkable property. Keep up the great work, I would recommend to anyone without a hesitation.
