Fodor's Review

Formerly the Tides, Punta Bete's most luxurious jungle-beach resort is still as romantic, private, and exotic as the it ever was. Sumptuous palapa villas with private plunge pools and outdoor "moon bath" showers in their palm-shaded gardens have virtually every imaginable comfort, from silky-soft sheets on great, canopy-draped king beds to artisan soap hand-cut by your butler. The resort makes the most of its setting at the edge of the jungle, greeting guests with a copal-smoke

blessing performed by a Maya shaman, but the winding paths through deep greenery and the appearance of the occasional monkey may not be for everyone. (There's bug spray at every corner, and you are advised to use it.) Junglephobes can also, of course, just stick to the pool, out of the woods and steps from the well-equipped beach. Meals at the two restaurants are exceptionally fine, especially at the more formal La Marea.
