I love small, boutique hotels where you get the real flavor of the area. This is a prime example. Being there took me right away from my hectic life in the US and sent me into a calm and breezy state. The room was perfect, the pool was perfect. The plantings are lush and gorgeous. You should see the orchids growing wild on the trees! In season there are plenty of mangoes to go around - right off the trees on-site. See the picture on the web site - exactly how it looks. The owner is a wonderful hostess and great fun; she'll do everything to make your stay perfect and will be happy to share local secrets - best restaurant, a deserted beach, a wonderful walk. The pancakes prepared by Juan for breakfast are the best I've ever had. I'm going back again and again, when I can escape from the "hectic". I love it there!
