OK, this resort WOWED us on this trip. It was better than what I had expected. We upgraded to the Master Suites, well worth the price I must say.

This hotel has a beautiful view. It is up on a cliff in a jungle overlooking the Pacific. The staff was so friendly and accommodating especially Alan the general manager. The rooms are nice but I would have liked more amenities such as robes. The breakfast was great. I felt the grounds needed some updating though. It is not walking...
