Feedback from Travelers
Felt like a secret resort tucked away into the mountain. We didn't see any other guests recruit at breakfast. The room was gorgeous. All dark wood and wood furniture. Spectacular view. Loved this hotel. Statues everywhere, little nature hikes. We saw hummingbirds, armadillo, and other wild animals.
I forgot my family passports and camera in the room. When I remembered, I was already half way to my next destination. The Anywhere van driver and the hotel staff helped to get my staff to my next hotel. Much appreciated!
