We spent a few days at the nearly empty resort and loved every minute. The room was one of their less expensive, but the view was good, over the pool and out to sea. The food was exceptional, every meal, every bite. Their corn cream soup at dinner was the winner. After the huge desayuno americano, we walked it off along the near-by beaches, la Perula, Boca de Iguanas, Chamela, Careyitos. We kayaked every morning over to Playa Blanca and Careyitos. I swam in the bay just to say I did; the water was around 80. I enjoyed just wandering around the resort taking in all the color and the architectural treats. Such a beautiful place. The staff humored us and let us practice our Spanish, which I appreciated. The drive down from Vallarta was easy, once we were over the hill from Boca. The cobblestone driveway, however, is rough and makes you want to limit the number of times you drive it. One small objection I have is that I wish they would provide free wi-fi access, since the resort is so pricy. But charging for everything seems pretty much standard practice in Mexico now.
