    Nice spacy room with clean bathroom. Airco. Good breakfast and diner. Nice pool with pool bar. Close to Dominical which has a great beach and a relaxed atmosphere. Great for golf surfing. We loved it!

    Beautiful very large garden like property, with very nice mature landscaping. Big pool with a swim-up bar and very nice tennis courts. Extremely nice staff very helpful and polite. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. They do need to work on their wi-fi in the rooms.

    We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.
