The staff was very nice and helpful and the location was great for getting to all sorts of places. You could also just stay and never leave the view was so beautiful. The villa was comfortable and safe. I do recommend a 4x4 and taking a tour of the sanctuary.

We came here at first to visit the animal sancturay (by the way that is a great activity to do + you help support a great cause and rescued animals) and found the place so beautiful that we decided to book a room. The service is impeccable, so is the hotel. We ate 3 meals there

The hotel has an amazing view to the ocean and it’s really relaxing. As it has a boutique-style and it’s small (8-9 cabins only), it could offer more amenities such as transfers to the beaches and massage/spa. The restaurant is really good, worth the visit. The home-made bread

Beautiful property and great cabanas. Food was mediocre but the view and staff make it amazing. Even security was super friendly and made our trip. Definitely check out the sanctuary and support their efforts. (Its not large but very cool to get so close to the animals)

My wife and I enjoyed our 4 night stay here. The staff was excellent - very friendly and attentive. The sanctuary was a great addition to our stay! Unbelievable views of wildlife and the surrounding area! We whale watched and bird watched all from our front porch over coffee!

Yes to both. Upon check-in, they take your credit card info and you run a “tab” during your stay and they charge your card once upon checkout. (Which helps with internationally usage fees the card charges)

There is no bird feeders. They have a restaurant with a great menu. It is expensive but the food is amazing. I can’t answer your question about the trail. There is a wildlife sanctuary on the property that we took pictures at. Not the same as the wild but good to see the work they do to save injured animals. I can’t say enough good things about the place. The view is stunning and people are great. I think every week about going back for more vacation time. Rent a vehicle its a must.

Not close. Probably a mile walk. Down big hill and across the highway.
