I really hated to leave! The staff was wonderful, the accommodation was fantastic, the ocean was right outside my door calling to me. A really, really top notch place. There are a lot of activities including hiking the volcanoes, snorkeling, cycling, diving, etc. The snorkeling was awesome!

We have traveled many places, and this is our favorite. The owners are so nice and the breakfast is lovely and the location cannot be beat. We will never forget our time here. It was truly magical. We walked to see flamingos, my son walked to a surfing beach, and we swam right in front of the hotel.
