What a fabulous resort! Attention to every detail! From arrival to departure the staff was very attentive. We visited the spa for one of the most luxurious massages. We wandered the beautiful property enjoying the toucans, hummingbirds and the stunning views. We made the best choice staying here for our 30th anniversary!
