We stayed at Mandarina for our honeymoon and overall had an amazing experience. The property / treehouses are exquisite and the natural beauty of the landscape is beyond - every day you wake up grateful to be in such a beautiful spot. The resort is expensive / a splurge, but it is a one-of-a-kind spot that is overall very worth it.

Starting with the positives, because there are many:
- Beautiful, clean property with stunning architecture and views everywhere you turn
- Lovely, friendly, attentive staff
- We actually loved the buggy system and had no major issues with delays as others have stated - we had a few minor delays typically around sunset so would just suggest to request early at those times - apart from that, we never waited more than 5 minutes and found it to be super fun!
- The pool at Carao is incredible - get there before 12pm to snag one of the best seats / umbrellas for the day
- We reserved a cabana at the Canalan Beach Club for a day and it was well worth it - a lovely, shady, private spot where we enjoyed lunch + a bottle of wine seaside
- We loved the spa and the hike to La Abuela, as well as the taco making class at Carao - but by far our favorite experience was the Alternative Spirits Tasting. I highly recommend this as it was so much more / better than we imagined - the bartender was so passionate and knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
- The Treetop bar is so cool, especially during a beautiful sunset

A few drawbacks / areas for improvement:
- The alcohol at the resort is ridiculously overpriced - not just typically-overpriced, but beyond. We regret that we didn't buy any bottles of wine or liquor in PVR, especially because they were out of stock on most minibar items we wanted - for example, they had no Mezcal and Rum, leaving our only options to be a very expensive small bottle of tequila or a small bottle of vodka (which we generally don't drink).
- The food is good but not great - some things were excellent and others average. This is not unexpected for resort food but I did have slightly higher expectations based on the restaurants / chefs (my husband and I are also foodies)
- For some reason, we always had a hard time getting enough water delivered to the room or getting milk replenished for our morning coffee - this is a relatively small issue / detail but for the price we paid, we expected this to be easier!

Overall, I really recommend this for a honeymoon or special occasion - it's unforgettable!

This was definitely a splurge for us, but it was our honeymoon and we are so glad we went! We're not entirely "resort people" but this place is truly something special. The views, the surrounding forest, the food, and the people who work here made it a really memorable experience. You have to get a bit used to the "buggy" system, the property is large and you need to call for someone in a cart to come get you whenever you need to go to one of the restaurants, the beach, spa etc. But if you just call them 10 minutes before you're ready to leave we found we had no problem getting anywhere. The two restaurants Carao and Allora were fantastic for dinner (make reservations ahead of time!) and The Jetty beach club was fantastic for lunch. Two experiences we loved were the hike to the Abuela tree and we also happened to be there when a bunch of baby sea turtles had hatched so we got to release them into the ocean at sunset. The spaces are all wonderfully designed and the location is just stunning. Definitely recommend for a honeymoon or big anniversary.

The views are to die for. The staff is top notch. This was the most relaxing vacation I’ve ever experienced! They’ve thought of everything to ensure that your stay is perfect for you. I was impressed at how personalized and intimate the resort feels even when full, you feel like you’re the only one there.
