Shuttle service is where it's at.
Just wish they had had a couple more firm pillows, but the superb shuttle service more than made up for that. They took us to a mexican place and I had some of the best tacos of my life!

Great place to get away
Recreo is a great place to get away from it all. Beach is close and very quiet. The staff is willing to do anything to make your stay enjoyable.
