The location on this retreat is amazing! We stayed in a casita, which was basically a private cabin - complete with hammock and porch - off isolated bt ourselves. The staff was super helpful about making sure we got to and from our tours (you have to take a 4 ×4 to and from the resort, as it is so rustic and remote). It is definitely a rustic retreat - reclaimed water showers and no A/C, but that was part of the charm for us. Very romantic to hear the sounds of the rainforest on your "patio" under a full moon for Christmas. The only suggestion we'd give is that the food was somewhat underwhelming. There were some missed opportunities with the vegetarian food - like putting mushrooms in spaghetti sauce to make it have more depth of flavor, etc. Not a huge deal, but veggie food sometimes gets defaulted into "overly plain," and for the veggie among us, just upping that would make it a full 5-star experience. Even so, definitely a retreat we'll remember happily for a long time.
