    Accessible only by boat, this place was simply beautiful. Great rooms in a beautiful tropical setting, very room and comfortable. The infinity pool overlooking the bay was truly relaxing. And, the grounds are amazing - very lush, with onsite waterfalls and an old Spanish fort....More

    A stunning luxury private retreat accessed by boat. It was so beautiful, quiet and peaceful, overlooking the water with the forest as a backdrop. Heaven. We explored the town of Portobello with its old cathedral and the ruins of a Spanish fort.
