I took a group of 37 people here in Feb 2012. It is a little off the beaten path but well worth the travel. The food was excellent, most in our group were vegetarian and they went way out of their way to accomadate our group. The service was excellent from the time we arrived to when we left. If we asked for a tour or activity to be arranged for our group it was taken care of without any problems. All the activities were great at the hotel. Would also reccomend going into town to tour the chocolate factory. Like others have mentioned only a couple staff spoke english but it was not a problem for our group as they were always around to answer any questions. Would love to go back.
