hesitated to write this review as I'm not sure it will do this place justice. You are greeted at reception by the owner, spend the first couple of hours being totally amazed and excited and taking everything in and then suddenly feel completely at home. We booked a hillside room but ended up in the little yellow cottage by the pool - twin gables. We had a front and rear balcony - the latter being enclosed completely by mosquito netting which meant we could sit out at night without being eaten. We quickly got the hang of the hammock and were charmed by the four poster bed and antique furniture. Views uphill were towards the mountain, and downhill across the gardens and the wonderful planting (the botanical gardens were just up the road but we found that there was so much of interest right on our doorstep). We watched hummingbirds in the morning and monkeys in the afternoon and listened to the tree frogs in the evening. The food here is rightly famous. At breakfast, we tried the french toast which was lovely (but a little sweet for us in the huge portions served) and enjoyed the pumpkin pancakes and local fruit juices enormously. Dinner in the evening is expensive but good quality. If you can only splash out on one meal do the west indian buffett on a wednesday night - we spent the day relaxing around the property and watching the pig cook, but actually the highlight of the 15 or so dishes was the rabbit pie. The main house was open to residents throughout the day and evening.
