So much more than a hotel!
If you're used to box-standard, soulless hotel service, this may not be the place for you. My wife and I spent a week here and by the time we left were referring to the staff as our Superfriends because they were so warm, helpful, friendly and made the place feel like home for us. It is also clear that being there is more than a job for them - they give the place such a constant personal touch. Can't say enough about them. The hotel itself is beautiful - minimalist architecture/setup that really fostered an air of tranquility and peace. Our room had a comfy bed, plenty of storage space, and a great bathroom with two shower heads, a large stone tub, two sinks and a toilet in a separate room. Through a side door was a small outside space just for us with a private hammock. It had A/C and a fan and both did their jobs just fine. The pool is a nice size and was fun to take a dip in. There are other hammocks strewn about the grounds as well as yoga space if that's your thing. The kitchen/communal area is lovely. We were encouraged to use the kitchen like it was our own. They will also cook you something awesome if you ask nicely. There is a great fire pit too! It is close to good food and not far from the beach (we rented a scooter which made every trip everywhere very short) but in a quiet part of town so when we came home we felt very much like we were escaping reality. It really is a very relaxing place and we can't wait to go back.
