Extraordinary!

Los Altos Hills, California

My husband and I stayed here for three nights with our children ages 18, 21, and 22 following our andBeyond safari in South Africa. It was all an experience of a lifetime. We wished we could have stayed a bit longer. The food was fabulous. The snorkeling and diving were amazing as were the staff. The coral reef was very healthy and our eyes were overwhelmed with the colors and life of the fish and coral. The accommodation was beautiful and very relaxing. We especially enjoyed the luxurious outdoor shower and the large bed/swing outside our casita on the beach. Truly an extraordinary place.

Perfect

This is a wonderful resort. The setting is incredible - the best I have visited anywhere, and the rooms are all beautifully positioned with easy access to the beach, but just set back far enough to give privacy. The service, food and staff were all wonderful, as were the experiences. I can particularly recommend the horse riding for those interested - the horses were lovely and well cared for.
