We had a private "beach casita", with our little stretch of beach, exquisite white sand, turquoise waters, sunrises and sunsets to die for, breathtaking beauty all around -- and set amid a beautiful tropical rain-forest with monitor lizards and the occasional snake to lend it authenticity. Each casita (cottage) has its own buggy to get around the sprawling campus, with two beautiful but pricey dining areas, tennis courts (well-maintained artificial grass courts), gym, spa, library and two lovely club houses with grand swimming pools.
The one aspect that marred the final day was the element of deceit involved in the billing. We were not asked to sign after any meals, or the use of any other facilities, but only saw those bills at the end. There were 3 of us (two adults and a child). We had been told that breakfasts would be free, but found out at check-out that that only applied to the adults -- and my 9-year-old child's light (albeit tasty) breakfasts were charged at over US$40 apiece. Similarly, we had a glass of prosecco and a glass of wine at two meals, and each glass of (medium-quality) wine cost an exorbitant US$35 per glass. Certainly not value for money, but otherwise one of the greatest weekend vacations on earth -- albeit a pricey vacation.
