we stayed at a private villa at Hotel Punta Islita and I did not want to leave. We had our own dipping pool that was high on the hill overlooking the ocean. Even though there was construction in progress the grounds were beautiful. A bit of walk to the beach but once you got there they had all the necessary amenties i.e. food, drink, and bathrooms. This hotel is remote. Upon arrival we almost had to add an extra hour onto our trip as the tide was coming in and our "shortcut" was filling with water. Our good fortune, the SUV was able to navigate the slowly filling waterway and got us to our destination much sooner.
Besides our private villa and private dipping pool the hotel pool was my second favorite place. It had a beautiful swim up bar and an infinity edge! The pool lounge chairs were covered is soft terry cloth! I felt like a movie star! :)
We were traveling with a large group so we did decide to break away one night and enjoy dinner by the ocean! The food was fantastic and the setting peaceful. The roving musicians I found a bit of a distraction..that's just me!
