The grounds are spectacular and beautifully maintained. Our daughter had a small wedding on the lawn, just inside the wall with the gorgeous Caribbean Sea in the background. Following the late afternoon ceremony we had an incredible sunset with amazing photo opportunities on the beach. It was perfect.
The accommodations were large enough to have two large families stay and we also rented the upstairs casita so we had quite a crowd. With the openness and outdoor living space we never felt cramped. Many of the bedrooms had en-suite bathrooms, and those that didn't had sinks that came in so handy with everyone getting ready at the same time. The kitchen was well stocked and nicely appointed and we were able to put on an amazing buffet.
The pool is lovely, and the kids were in it almost constantly. We were a little disappointed that the small raised pool is not a hot tub, but with the wonderful tropical temperatures it really didn't matter.
One thing that I hadn't noticed in the ad is that the facility has backup power. When many of our friends staying at other places lost power, we were totally unaware and had no problems.
The beach is lovely, but not swimmable. There are sea urchins on the rocks and some guests found out the hard way. It is a short, and quite lovely walk down the beach to one of the nicest beaches and snorkeling areas at Steps Beach, so it really wasn't a problem. Sandy Beach is also a short drive and has wonderful waves to play in.
The Beach House Restaurant is right up the road and has delicious food and drinks, and a great viewing area for sunset. We did have a perfect sunset view right from the house as well, but this was a fun place to go.
If you are staying on the west side of the island, BQN is a much easier airport to fly in and out of. Another option is to fly into SJU to see Old San Juan then fly out of BQN. We found car rental prices accommodated this option at the same price.
Don't miss the bioluminescent bay and the Gozalandia Waterfall. There's so much to see in Puerto Rico. It really is a magical and wonderful country.
Anna was SO easy to work with, it really was a pleasure. Thank you for everything... we couldn't have dreamed of a better venue!
