Fodor's Review

Impeccable service gives this place an edge among the area's handful of set-back-in-the-woods lodgings. The engaging British-Dutch couple who owns the property took care to limit the impact of constructing two secluded hardwood guesthouses on this onetime cacao plantation. One house has one bedroom, the second has two bedrooms and accommodates up to four people; both have a full living room and kitchen. Wi-Fi, a private plunge pool, and a barbecue round out the offerings,

all unexpected touches in a setting such as this. The owners are on-site if you need them, yet far enough away (as is the other house) that your closest neighbors are the agoutis, monkeys, and toucans that populate the property.
