What makes a memorable stay at a location is the food, comfort, and a wonderful view---and this place has all of it. The food is top quality and heavenly...our favourite was the jumbo cocktail shrimp! The drinks are fantastic & I would recommend trying the signature drinks such as the Shark, Whale, Seahorse, and Dolphin. The place is only a few minutes away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and has a lovely view of the Whale's Tail. You can see dolphins and whales from the crystal-clear infinity pool. It is not unlikely to see sloths, toucans, and kudamundis hang out next to you peacefully in the trees.
If you already have accommodations planned, it is most definitely worth planning an evening visit just to have an amazing dinner and watch the sunset as it fades along the horizon, with colours ranging from vibrant yellows to a dazzling orange to a coral pink and blue-cotton-candy.
