We had stayed here last year and gave this hotel a five-star review. The staff, the room, the view, the macaws, the service were stellar. This trip was almost as good but not as good. Unlike our shuttle driver Ronald last year, we had a shuttle driver that didn't speak English

Greetings and thanks to everyone for responding. We welcome outside guests! Priority is given to registered guests, but we usually don't have a problem accommodating visitors. The beach club is especially popular for day visitors. For the main restaurant, availability is more limited and requires registering at the gate. We look forward to your arrival!

Hi! We have a very special relationship with the local community. It is a tiny traditional village with exciting features like the Community Art Museum and Gallery. The local chapel does hold services in Spanish and our neighbors are delighted when travelers join service. :)
