We are a family of 5, kids ages 10-16 and we had a very mixed experience here. Everything people have written before us is true, the good and the bad! Yes, it is absolutely astoundingly gorgeous, where else can you be alone on a beach with palm trees, warm water and coconuts in a hammock snorkeling in your birthday suit?! That close to the USA! The wildlife is out of this world, who eats lunch with monkeys and who feeds deer out of their hands? This place is surreal!
But, we were hungry, very very hot (no fan b/c solar power broke), and climbing that hill from our house to the restaurant almost killed us every meal, and even though Frank the owner is a great guy, sometimes we didn't want to eat dinner with him (sorry family vacation). So we decided to rename the spot the Eco Lodge because It is Ecologically very earth friendly, it is also very economically run (I mean frank told us he doesn't let the chef throw out tomato cores, he has to use them in salsa!)and it is a lodge, not a resort- the little houses have 1950's bathrooms with no ventilation so the towels never dry (and the towels are thin), and resort implies luxury which is lacking, "roughing it" is the name of the game here!
Go here, try it if you are wildlife loving, extremely fit (lots of hills), don't care about food, beach loving, hiker who wants to sit in a hammock read and listen to Frank regale you with his stories of yesteryear! It is simply gorgeous scenery
