Fodor's Review

The sprawling hacienda-style complex is set along a beautiful stretch of ocean and their first-class Pete Dye–designed golf course has spectacular views of the sea and countryside. Mountainside tennis courts, plus on-site dive and water activity operator (Ocean Encounters) ensure plenty to do beyond sunbathing. There are multiple pools, and the calm surf is ideal for little ones, as well as a Kid's Club. Special theme nights bring island color and culture, and sushi and signature cocktails in the grand lobby/terrace are not to be missed. Especially noteworthy is the staff. Above and beyond friendly and competent, they make this massive place a homey enclave for all.
