Beautiful, away from the crowds and relaxing. No television, lovely pool, good food, friendly staff and beautiful hiking right from the retreat. They only serve breakfast and dinner so it's a good idea to bring a small ice chest for snacks. We brought our own bottle of wine but they charged a corkage fee so bring your own opener. The deck at our room was private, with a couple chairs and hammock. Beautiful view of the rainforest. Follow the directions that they give you on their website. We tried to use GPS at first and got very lost.
