The grounds are amazing and very well kept. The lodge and rooms were made out of wood yet still very modern, comfortable and very clean. Was nice and peaceful. The pool area and bar were beautiful. Drinks were reasonable food was good....not great but good. Nice that they had vegatarian food as well. They offered lots of different excursions, we saw monkeys, sloths, and various birds on the boat. We saw the turtle laying its eggs on the night tour. Close walk to little town and very close to the black sand beach. Well worth the money...a hightlight of our trip for sure. Oh yes hamocks outside each room, iguanas on the grounds, like you are in the rain forest.
