My stay here was great, it's a very beautiful property. The pool was refreshing, and there was different seating options to hang out. It was not very busy when I stayed here, so it was a very relaxing atmosphere. I would be thrilled to stay here again in the future.

Beautiful, comfortable, and amazing staff. This was a great place to get away from it all and relax. I was a solo traveller and enjoyed it here. With a group of friends this would be an amazing place to stay.

The hotel was located a fair drive away from San Juan Del Sur, but was close enough not to be really inconvenient. Check in was easy and they gave me a suite/private cabin which was fine for me but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with trouble walking as it was up about 10 flights of stairs, but the view was fantastic.The food was fine and the staff was friendly and helpful when necessary.
