We stayed at La Dauphine Estate for 3 nights as part of the Adventure package booked through Villa Beach Cottages (separate review posted). We were there with another couple and the four of us were fortunate enough to have the whole estate to ourselves! Upon our arrival we were greeted by Antonia, the housekeeper. She had cooked a meal for us (ordered before our arrival) that was delicious and plentiful which we enjoyed on the back patio, listening to the sounds of the rainforest. We stayed in the estate house, relaxing on the wraparound porch or lounging in the infinity pool. There are tropical plants, flowers and fruit trees all around that make you realize you are in a very special place. Charles, the estate manager, gave us a very interesting tour with a history of the estate and how chocolate is made. The whole estate was available for us to explore and we took advantage of this. We hiked up the ridge and went across the road to see where they grow so many beautiful flowers they supply local hotels and restaurants. This was one of most memorable places I have ever stayed. Antonia and Charles were very helpful and made us feel at home in the rainforest!
