I really had doubts about writing a review as not to ruin the place with popularity but the host was so gracious that it was the least I can do for the wonderful stay we had. No pictures can capture this place as it is more of an immersion. This was simply the very best beach experience we have ever had. Sand so soft that you can sink up to your ankles walking along the beach. Look back and your foot prints may be the only ones. The rooms were perfect from open air showers (look up to see the stars at night), top notch touches, and even an electric fireplace for that romantic look. The beach is right there so the sounds of the waves at night where better than any sleeping pill. The food was great and the drinks plentiful at the Tiki Bar right on the beach. We named the the tiki bar the Green Flash after the owner and I witnessed the rare event at sunset. We had the luck that a family flew in on their plane and made a grand meal that was shared by everyone with great conversations with others guests, the owners, and very interesting locals. They have a pontoon boat for trips that can give you a day you will always remember. We dove on a wreck and there are so many reefs that it is simply - hey lets try this one! The water was so clear that we watched sea turtles dash about 60 feet down! My wife who does not snorkel loved watching the sea life from the boat. While we were using the scooters to explore the island everyone we came across waved and smiled. What a great time and exactly what we wanted for 5 days. It gave us what no big box resort could ever give, peace. Richard, you have created something special.
