The retreat gave stellar service. From the moment I stepped to the front desk I was greeted with a fresh juice and cool cloth. I received a tour of the beautiful property and then escorted to my room. The food delicious, the yoga class was amazing and all of the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Grissela at the front desk packed a beach bag for me for excursions, the 2 chefs I seen the most were very kind and made vegan meals, Thank you Chef Sergio and his apprentice. Big thank you to Gustavo I believe is his name he gave a wonderful tour of the property and was very helpful throughout my stay. The property is safe the views are breathtaking. Wish I spent more time just at the hotel. It is extremely tranquil and relaxing.
