"The lodge is in a beautiful setting with a good pool. The owner and staff were friendly and helpful. When there were some small problems, they quickly accommodated our needs. The beach is a short walk away, and there is a delightful bakery close by for breakfast and meals. We were thrilled to see turtles at night through a tour they booked for us. "
