We stayed here 3 nights on our honeymoon after a road trip across the country and wish we had stayed here the entire time. We were worried that the tent cabin would be too hot, but it was completely comfortable with the ceiling fan and the ocean breeze. We woke and went to sleep to the sounds of the ocean, with no noise from neighbors or anyone on the beach (which is typically abandoned.) They had bon fires at night on the beach that were lovely to sit by. The customer service was amazing with the exception of the pool service- drinks were pretty slow there.
Other than the tent, the restaurant was our favorite. It has a very intimate, romantic feel, and the food is AMAZING. Many great options to choose from aside from the wine menu isnt that great but that seems to be country-wide. As the other reviews say, it can take a while, but you wouldn't want it to be any faster. At least for the tent cabins, I would say that the cost of the room makes staying here very inexpensive when you keep in mind that breakfast and dinner are included.
Definitely do the Tortuga Island tour. We didnt want to do anything more touristy, but it was a really fun and relaxing beach excursion to the beautiful island. The beach by the hotel and in Montezuma are very rocky with rough waves, so I wouldnt recommend swimming there- instead do the tour.
We also went to the waterfalls in Montezuma, which was really fun, and my husband jumped off the higher cliffs.
Great stay! Definitely recommended.
