Second Visit - like going home again

Just back from a repeat visit with another couple. Just love this place. Will definitely go back again. The setting is just super, with great van transportation because resort is spread out and on a hillside. Everyone here is super friendly and attentive. 24/7 service is superb. Food very good, and for most part reservations aren't needed. Top shelf drinks. Gourmet coffee shop a favorite. Cinthia is awesome there. Great poolside service. Christopher one of the nicest young men we've had the fortune of meeting. Luis is very attentive. Great entertainment/activity staff with lots to do daily. Just love the rooms here. Two very nice hiking trails onsite. One leads to a high view of the bay, which is one of my favorite places anywhere. And then there is Julio, a driver with such a contagious and positive attitude. Have never gone anywhere that has felt more like home than here, and we have done a ton of traveling. Top shelf across the board!


This place was excellent. The staff was friendly, all inclusive, great views, great scenery, and NO KIDS!!!! making for a very relaxing experience. Theres also vendors along the beach offering reasonably priced excursions!

Overall we had a lovely time here, the food and staff were all great although the interpretation of pad Thai was not what I expected !
It did take two goes for the sensor to be removed from the air conditioning to stop it beeping hourly through the night and acting as a regular alarm.
The biggest issue was our bungalow (201) had an interconnecting door. This meant noise travelled very easily - not ideal next when next to a couple on honeymoon.
Finally I would say that they really need to increase the number of umbrellas around the spa pool as it was often a struggle to get one of the very few, and when either the sun was out or it was raining they were very much required.
