Spend a short week at this very distinctive boutique hotel on top of a mountain with 270 degree views of the Pacific Ocean. Fewer than 60 rooms with amenities and services that are exemplary. The infinity pool and sunsets breathtaking. Lots to do.

I enjoyed our stay very much. Every morning we had breakfast with great view. The food and drinks were great. The massage was very good. The hennessy mohito was good but very pricey. Our room service created elephants and turtles with towels on the bed each night. The private beach is great and had jacuzzi and bar there as well.... More

This hotel epitomizes what a boutique hotel should be. Great service, wonderful furnishings and art, amazing location and surrounded by natural beauty. My wife saw toucans off our balcony that had a 180 degree view both side to side and up and down! (Room 1). Sunsets were amazing from the bar/amphitheater. People came from all over for the sunsets and... More
