I've done a lot of travel, stayed in a lot of very nice places and read a lot of reviews. Nick's place is the real deal. One of the nicest places we've every stayed.
Great location on a spit of forested land between the ocean and the Rekawa Lagoon. Sea turtles nest on the beach, you can swim in the rocky pools, the sunset is fabulous. Staff was uniformly friendly and capable. Rooms are first rate - we enjoyed the large bed, tub for two and indoor/outdoor shower. Food is all to order, no buffet. Basically means eat when you want - and the food was great. The grassy area around the pool is tranquil and Nick is an affable, accessible, first rate host.
My only regret: we didn't stay longer. We will next time. Cheers, Nick!
PS To my fellow Americans. Nick asked us to spread the word and get more folks to visit from the USA. Do it.
