We enjoyed our 2012 visit so much we decided to return to paradise one more time, and hopefully many more in the future too.
By far this resort is the best we have visited. The rooms are large and luxurious. Staff is remarkably friendly, knowledgable and remember your name from first time you meet them, some even from last year! You can be as lazy and relaxed as you want to be, under the palms on the beach, or adventurous as your body will allow. This year we zip-lined, kayaked thru the mangroves, visited a butterfly garden and went whale watching on jet skis! Also, As a former science teacher, really enjoyed the Sustainability tour of the resort itself and the extreme measures they take to earn and keep their 5 Leaf, like stars, environmental awards. Of course left time every other day, and most afternoons, for our daily rejuvenation on the beach. This place is way far and above "Top of the class". Will definitely be back, can't wait!
