I stayed here for four days of my honeymoon after staying at Costa Azul just north of here in San Francisco. I was happy we did it in that order, because although Costa Azul was comfortable and pretty fun, this place is amazing. I booked based on the reviews here, and they were very accurate. Besides the stunning location, the owners have great taste and every little detail is well thought out. The landscaping is impeccably maintained, there are friendly dogs and pet birds, and the music in the restaurant area is great and eclectic (no Matchbox 20 and Santana on constant repeat, thank god), We stayed in the love nest, which is private and has a great view, but we'd probably stay down closer to the beach next time we come, mostly because the love nest tends to attract more large beetles and spiders than the others (i didn't have too much of a problem but my wife gets a little creeped out....the bug netting around the beds works well though).
The restaurant is decent. Breakfast is absolutely fantastic and it's cheap, and lunches are simple and good. Dinner is a $25 price fix affair and in my opinion you can get better food in town for far, far less.
If this is the type of place you are looking for, stop looking. Very affordable, and your expectations will be exceeded.
