this place is rather unusual as far as hotels go. i would describe it as an eco retreat. The experience is so relaxing. i went on honeymoon and have never felt so "disconnected" in the best possible way. no tv, no radio, real peace and quit. enjoy the people you are with, sit on a hammock (but not in the noisy, manufactured experience you find at other hotels), listen to birds, feel a warm breeze. This isn't on the water, and doesn't give an island vibe in the normal sense, but really was a spectacular experience. I will never regret this experience. We stayed in Casa rodonda, in the large room. loved the breakfast, again- making your own food from the wonderful goodies they left is not the typical hotel experience, but was exactly what we were seeking. highly recommend!! also, we stayed in dec 2010 but i can't enter that date below. The service staff is totally hidden and out of the way... thats the experience you get here. But you have everything you need. if you want to be waited on, pampered and have luxurious traditional high end hotel experiences with high tech gadgetry, i'm sure this is NOT the place for you. but if you want an off the beaten track experience, and to really be part of a natural environment in a way we often aren't you will enjoy this.
