Located between the small village of Río San Juan and the town of Cabrera, this luxurious jungle retreat overlooks the crescent-shaped Playa Grande beach. The 25 minimalist casitas, many with private pools, feature glass walls with unobstructed ocean views, high ceilings and large shaded terraces. The two-bedroom Bay View Casa comprising a pool, a kitchen, four courtyards, two baths and a private buggy is ideal for families. Amenities at the resort include an indoor-outdoor restaurant with a terrace, the beachside Club de Playa for casual dining and an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. and renovated by his son Rees Jones. An array of outdoor activities offered includes guided nature walks, kayaking, horseback riding and deep-sea fishing excursions. Cooking classes, unique spa treatments that employ locally grown herbs and plants, and whale watching between the months of January and March can also be arranged.
