Very nice, quiet and remote hotel with different trails to discover the local animals( we saw iguanas, monkeys, birds) , a warm pool with salt treatment and not chlorine. They have a restaurant which is a little pricey but the service is great .

Very Good 8.0
Cool location but very expensive.
Very remote area but they do offer a water taxi during certain times of the day to help you view the area. Overpriced hotel but I can see why in the remote area. Nothing is included in your stay, you pay for everything on top of your nightly charge.

Between water and rainforest.
Loved to boat rides to town and the ocean with Jordan....he was so kind, always smiling. Willis was an excellent turtle tour guide, and even found some sloths and a toucan along one of our boat rides with him. Fantastic service from all!
