A stay at this hotel is an interesting and educational experience. Ir'a a short walk to the Haitises National Park with its karst formations, rivers, mangroves, flying and nesting birds, caves, petroglyphs and pictographs, And the hotel itself is a work of art. Astonishing that the hotel, built out of natural stone from the area, was built into a mountainside in the middle of a cascading river. The views of the rushing water, swirling pools and numerous waterfalls are from your room, from your table at the restaurant or and while walking the grounds. The water is loud, scary and mesmerizing. The hotel is not expensive, but it takes some effort to get to it--like most real treasures. We are happy to have found it and stayed for two nights.
