    The grounds are beautiful with all the plant life.

    Barking dogs kept us up a bit through the night but other than that it was great.

    The hospitality, food, and accommodations are exceptional. My only regret is we couldn't stay longer. The advice we were given was spot on and the dinner was fantastic. We were traveling with a teen and this is our 13th trip to Latin America. The balance between privacy and friendliness provided by the hosts was perfect. This is one of the few places I have ever bothered to leave written comments for, but it is a real gem and I want to spread the word.

    The breakfast bread was delicious! Jose and Zinnia were kind and helpful...when we found out dinner was not being served, Jose offered to bring roasted chicken to our room...above and beyond...

    The refrigerator could have been turned on prior to arrival ... and the rotting mangoes in the parking could have been pushed aside ...made it a bit difficult to roll bags...

    Everything was amazing.
