4/10 Fair

Needs remodeling
This hotel is in decline. the first night we ordered room service and the meals came an hour later and my food had little ants crawling on it. I called the restaurant and they said “No, that is the black wild rice in the meal” I said “We’ll, my rice learned to walk then.” The jacuzzi had most of the control buttons broken, out of date outlets that were hard to plug into, old light fixtures in the rooms etc. The views are amazing but the hotel is just run down and needs some attention.

This property surprised us. We had no idea how high in the canopy we would be. The facility is beautiful. I love how nature is overlapped into the property.

Amazing hotel. I can't believe it is even on hotels.xom or Expedia... One of a kind. Not for children under 15...

Wow! This place is just beautiful. There are flowers everywhere. The views and grounds are stunning. The private beach is nice, but the hot tub wasn’t in operation there. The stonework on property with the rich landscaping sets it apart. There were only a few people here when we stayed so it was almost like having it as a private villa. The views from the villa were great, and even the jetted tub and bathroom had the same view.

The views were absolutely amazing! The staff was friendly and helpful. I’ve never seen someone deep clean a room daily, which included changing bed sheets daily too. I didn’t even have to ask for towels. I am definitely going to stay here again on my next visit to back.
