Favourite place I have ever been to in the world - what more can I say. Beautiful setting, attentive staff, nature at its finest, the sea one side, the river the other, the giant iguanas, their very own Red Eyed tree frog breeding area, the lovely pool, the huge rooms in our beautiful chalet. The freshest fruit and coconut I have ever tasted. Luxury, relaxation, perfection .....
