Words can not begin to describe this resort. Resort to me always sounds pretentious but that is not the case here. If I could use one word to describe this place it would be relaxing. The reason? The ocean. Not a calm and peaceful ocean- but the one in all it's glory! Waves crashing right outside the cabana's, tides coming in and out, fisherman diving in front of resort for their morning's catch.
We slept with the doors open. Ceiling fans, thatched roofs. Comfortable bed. The ocean calling every day and every night.
The staff A+. Speedy with his incredible cooking skills, his son Juan always with a smile on his face and willing to help.
And there is Pepe - always willing to ask about your day, offering ideas and suggestions on things to see. He is at the dinner table most nights and so much fun and what a life that guy has had.
There are birds, there are tiny lizards scampering on the pathways when you walk.
The food, amazing. And we are good cooks! Every morning Speedy brought coffee to us on our patio as we sat and watched the ocean.
All I can say is, just go. Don't' wait to experience this place. I have traveled to many countries and stayed in many wonderful places. But this place above all calls me back- it was built as a labor of love and it shows.
I am dreaming of our next visit - not soon enough.
