      Wonderful experience

      The property is located at the edge of the jungle with a magnificent view of the Pacific and the sunset. It was just remote enough to be quiet and away from the crowds. Hannia was very helpful with everything. It couldn't have been better. Thanks so much for sharing your property with us.

      5/5 Excellent


        We loved staying in this private area of nature. It was so lovely and peaceful - and full of animals and birds. I wished we would have stayed here longer.

        4/5 Good

          Nice studio apartment

          The studio apartment was very nice and clean. The deck was literally surrounded by jungle. However, the first day it was quite noisy due to the pool pump kicking on and off. This was corrected by day two. The driveway is extremely steep and difficult to get down with luggage. We enjoyed hearing the monkeys at nighttime.

          4/5 Good

            Ideal comfortable apartment for 2 adults.

            There is a nice private balcony. Unfortunately views were obstructed by foliage. But for a better view we only had to sit by the pool. The pool was awesome! Great star gazing. You really need a car to enjoy all the amenities in area. Note that it is a 10-15 minute drive to get out to the main road. The closest beach (under 5 minutes) in complex, Playa Blanca was lovely and there was good snorkeling! Thank you Hannia for the delicious fruit basket!!

            • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

            Nice place with all utilities in good shape, internet service from not so good to not available sometimes. Apartment is small, no more than 2 guests if you plan to be indoors comfortably.
