I would definitely come back to this place! You can tell the owner cares about his guests to ensure they have a great time and are taken care of! Would recommend to anyone looking for a private getaway. It has an outdoor shower and hot tub, wine bar and great service!

Everything about our stay here was wonderful. The casitas, staff, food, views, wine bar, everything was so perfect and beautiful. Definitely a better place for couples than families. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough - my husband and I will definitely be going back!

This hotel is fabulous! They take care of everything for you and are happy to give advise on the best activites in the area. We met a lot of other honeymooner's and got a chance to enjoy the wine bar... a lot! It is truly in a perfect location, staff there is great, and the rooms were even more beautiful than seen online. YOU MUST GO HERE!!! But seriously.... it is not a place for kids!!

Breakfast & Dinner were included with our package - and boy did we take full advantage. The food was INCREDIBLE, and they had a special prix fixe menu that changed every night.

There was construction while we were there - they're building a sushi bar, I believe - which was a little annoying, but when I called the desk to ask how long they'd be working he said if it was troublesome they'd tell them to stop for the day. We obviously said that wasn't necessary, but it was a nice offer!

Two resident parrots - a green one and a macaw - provided great entertainment. The wine bar was fun, with the sampling machines and board games. Pool was small but clean and always the perfect temperature.

We set up a lot of excursions through the hotel, and they were great at arranging transportation and making sure we were prepared for the adventure!

We had a 30 minute massage and took advantage of the open air gym, despite the humidity turning us into sweat monsters within 5 minutes. (chilled towels and cold water are complimentary and very much appreciated)

Great trip. Would highly recommend.

We absolutely fell in love with this motel. We were warmly greeted as we arrived and was given a bottle of water and scented cold clothes to freshen up with. Our room shouted luxury when we walked thru the door. A hot on the deck and a hammock along with a table and chairs. We had an outdoor shower and an indoor shower. Robes and slippers were provided. The restaurant had wonderful food and the service was the best. The gardens are beautiful to walk thru. Lindsay was a great asset to the motel. She was informative and really cared about the day we had when we returned from our outings.

I thought I loved Secrets Capri in Mexico but this by all means beats them yes it's a TAD pricey but so worth every single red cent! Very romatic the serivice was fantastic if anyone is heading out there anytime soon Please say hi to Lindsey for me she rocks! I won't say much because else just delight in all the lil surprises and explore the whole property, the place does it all by itself just go if your thinking about it and soak in every minute of it we went for 3 days and it wasnt enough Got to compare it to the Westin playa conchal and it knocks it out!

Room Tip: you dont have to get the bigger rooms to enjoy but if you can it's worth the splurge

simply wonderful.

stayed here on a whim with no reservations (Aug 2011) and stayed for 2 nights of pure luxury. gorgeous grounds, beautiful rooms, amazing views of the volcano, excellent customer service, great food in the restaurant.

it's not cheap, but it's worth every penny.

note: there was some construction going on-- nothing that obtrusive, but if i suggest checking about that before your visit and making sure your room is far from it.
