Fodor’s Expert Review

At this ideal—and affordable—tropical retreat for the winter-weary, four bungalows are sprinkled around lush grounds with views of both mountains and ocean. The garden is full of mature fruit trees and flowering shrubs, many with botanical labels, and visited by fruit-loving birds. Each bungalow has two units, some with kitchens and air-conditioning and others with only a fan, but shade trees keep them all cool. Five private villas are discreetly sited so as not to block any views; and there's a rustic, riverside duplex cabin for the more adventurous. The full breakfast is French inspired—crepes, French toast, omelets—and is served in a thatch-roof dining room overlooking an inviting pool with a waterfall. French-accented dinners are offered nightly (except Tuesdays and Wednesdays) during high season. There's also a separate, shaded small children's pool and playground.
