It's 8:30am and the sun is shining through a crack in your curtain window. You're excited because you just arrived in the dark the night before. What do you see? Hmmm...where does one start? You open the curtain a little further and you see a river rushing through a mix of green shrubs and palm trees. You hear the river rushing past but there is another sound...it's like a bee hive. Then a large bug flies by? then another...and another....no...wait...it's not a bug. It's a hummingbird! Many hummingbirds! I'm no birder but I saw over 60 different hummingbirds fly by my window and drink from the sugar water feeder in under 30 minutes. My three children were so excited they could hardly contain themselves. I've seen Gorillas in the mist and Polar Bears in the Arctic...and this...well this rates right up there. NO..I wasn't paid to say this. My wife and I were just very happy with the service from Todd, his wife, Jay and Christian who treated us how they would like to be treated. They and the rest of the staff were all busy like hummingbirds to make our trip a great one! and the rooms....you get more then what you pay for...the restaurant...best food in town. If I were a hummingbird I'd hang ...or buzz at the Dragonfly!
