6/10 Good

The hotel was ok. Unfortunately the manager was very unhelpful. They Offered no solution to exchange money. No transportation out of the hotel unless it through their overpriced tour company. The is 1 hour away from the airport and 20 minutes from playa blanca beach. You would think they would have car or taxi service to get you to the beach but the wasn’t a taxi in sight. The restaurant food was ok- the menu is the same every day. There is no variety

The staff was nice, the facility was clean and desinfected. The best part is that it wasn't too crowded, allowing guests to have enough space and practice social distance. Overall a good experience.

6/10 Good

The property is very nice and the staff were friendly and helpful. The private beach is nice but the water isn’t as clean as you’d expect from the pictures and it’s only about waist deep at the deepest part of the marked parameter. The food in the restaurant was good and the cocktails were delicious ... but the prices are so high it is difficult to enjoy. Me and my girlfriend tried to eat lightly because I’d the prices and the total was still more than 500,000 pesos per day. Since the hotel is secluded you have no other options. After paying 400,000 for the room the bill from at the restaurant was a little disappointing.

Espectacular, vamos a volver!
Es un hotel boutique convenientemente ubicado en la isla de Barú al frente de Cholón. El servicio es impecable, la comida es deliciosa y tienes la oportunidad de disfrutar la playa, la cual es pequeña pero muy hermosa. Con mi familia fui a hacer kayaking por la zona y lo pasmos super!
