This hotel property is amazing and the manager Maria went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. I booked the Andaz to propose to my fiancé and Maria helped me with the planning months in advance and reassured me upon arrival that everything would be taken care of accordingly, and it was! All of the rooms have amazing bay views, if you can get a suite you will not regret the extra $. We only left the property twice. One night we went to the Four Seasons for dinner at Di Mare, although it wasn't bad the restaurants and ambiance at the Andaz were much better. We also did a full day excursion to Buena Vista which included horse back riding, zip-lining, and hot springs; I would definitely recommend looking into it. As for food at the property I would say anything on the dinner menu at Chao Pescao was the best meal. For breakfast I would definitely order room service at least one morning and also the pork belly benedict at Rio Bhongo was delicious. Ostra has some of the best ceviche as well. Both pools were great to lounge at during the day, which we did most of the time. The property is expansive but we found the walks at all times of the day enjoyable as there is always a chance to see monkeys, coati's, hummingbirds, and iguanas. They will pick you up in a golf cart if you prefer not to walk. The staff at and the surroundings of the hotel really make this a world class destination. I would highly recommend this property for any and all vacations! Thanks for the great memories!
