This place really made my husband and I feel like we were in the middle of heaven. Break-taking views, amazing service, beautiful rooms, delicious food. I can go on and on... You get the couzy touch of a boutique hotel with the amanities of a big chain like Marriott. Every member of the staff deserve recognition and they make guests feel at home. The bar tender in the beach club area, Miguel, is super nice and prepares excellent drinks! The hotel was built in the least intrusive way for the area and it is very environmentaly friendly, which is important to me. I highly recommend a walk from the beach to "Punta Islita" in the mornings with low tide: you can walk through the shore of the beach and cross some rocks during low tide; it is like a 30 min walk until you get there (but hurry up becuse the high tides in this beach are no joke!). The only thing we did not like was the drive, some of the gravel roads are in really bad condition and when we booked the room, we did not get any advise from Marriott to rent a SUV, which is frankly thing is a must to get there. We rented a normal car and almost got stuck... HOWEVER, I want to go back and spend a week there, it was totally worth it!
