          I stayed here for one night with family to attend a graduation. The grounds are beautiful and I felt transported to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I am planning to go back for a romantic getaway with my fiancé once we are married.

          We do not have a shuttle from the resort to LAX. The service we recommend is Santa Barbara Airbus, which picks up close to the resort. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you!
