We left after only one night with food poisoning. They tried to charge us more for meals even though I wasn't getting a refund for any of the time we weren't using. Do yourself a favor and stay home or go else where.

Some of the staff was amazing, but others, such as those in the office at the gate, were less than welcoming. I needed to use the phone at times (I had a prepaid phone card) to call my young children who were back home, and I was met with some rudeness and hostility. It would have been nice to be able to use the phone from the restaurant area...just a thought. Also, for the price you pay, I would think, at the very least, that the screens in the bungalows would be repaired and maintained a lot better than they were. Also, the trip to town and back was too infrequent; would be nice to offer your guests a tad more flexibility, especially for the evening, The property was beautiful and the food, at times, was very good, and the yoga studio and intructor was amazing, but I'm not sure I'd recommend this place as it is a bit too tough to get to town and beaches and there are other, very lovely places, that were much more reasonably priced.

So many things! Fabulous setting on the side of a mountain, overlooking the ocean, wildlife everywhere. We LOVED the morning wake up by the howler monkeys, which we never saw, but had many sightings of capuchin monkeys. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking in the rain forest. Great vegetarian food. Wonderful array of things to do. The birding tour was so interesting we did it again. Altogether an experience I would love to repeat.

Gorgeous setting, pleasant/helpful staff, comfortable accommodations, good food, emphasis on sustainability. A couple of challenges -- wifi access is down a very steep dirt road about a mile from rooms, and only available until 5 p.m.; and nothing is within easy walking distance (although Retreat provides shuttle into town as needed).
