My one and only complaint about the lookout inn is that Terry has absolutely ruined any other hotels chances of ever impressing me. It's hard to even call it a hotel, there's more powerful forces at work here than a comfortable bed and a good meal. The geographical features of the property are astonishing, it's literally a mountain, a jungle, and a beach all in one. Now a sandwich is only as good as what's inside so if the mountain/jungle/beach is the bread, then the monkeys/macaws/tapir(if your lucky.... He's not on payroll) are the juicy lunch meats. When we checked in there was a whole gang of capuchins hanging out in the lounge area, we saw all four species of monkeys within a quarter mile of the premise. The property is quite literally breathtaking, trying to put it into words is useless. Now on to the hospitality... Again, flawless. Dinner was too good, both myself and my friend felt as if we damaged our stomaches we ate so much, amazing food served at three different locations, one for breakfast, one for lunch, one for dinner. It doesn't take a lot of perception to tell that massive amounts of passion were put into the creation of this masterpiece, it's a work of art. Terry, your an absolute legend my man and I will never forget the little bit of time I spent in the reality you created down there huge thanks to you and you wife for having us. I'm coming back to CR, and I'm gna come work for you haha so don't forget about us! One last note I did say mountain so if you chunky dunk in stead of skinny dip this may not be the pool for you!
