My wife and I got a deluxe ocean suite with two queen beds. We stayed 5 nights. Room had a nice sized balcony with two...

Pros: The resort is great, very clean and high quality. The setting is amazing and remote. The food was decent, nothing spectacular. We ate at the fancy restaurant once and it was good. Cons We didn't do the all inclusive it was over $100 per day per person so not worth it. Once you're there you're stuck and they somewhat...

The food was wonderful - garlic shrimp served pool side and the shrimp cocktail was terrific. Drinks were refreshed frequently and were well made. We were given a tour of the 3 bedroom unit and it would work well for...

The found is consistently good, staff very helpful. The area is pristine. Often you will find yourself alone in the bay. Paddle boards and kayaks are readily available and you can snorkel right from the beach. We always felt safe. The hotel is very clean. Evenings are very quiet , the beds comfortable...a good sleep!

We owned here and haven't visited for a couple of years. We have forgotten how beautiful and scenic is Danzante Bay, and the great hospitality of the staff there. You know a place is good when the service staff still there since they opened 5 years ago. The accommodations are fabulous. We had a one bedroom villa ( separate room,...
