A quiet, luxurious hotel with fine gourmet restaurants, ready to fulfill many of the guests' requests. This hotel is on the ocean side, but buildings are carved into the mountains, making it unique as you are close to the jungle life, with marvelous ocean view.

We stayed at Hotel Mousai and came down to visit Garza Blanca before going kayaking. We enjoyed the small beach and kayaking, the pools are lovely, but all in all, I would not stay here.

This resort was great in every way. from the staff, to the front desk. One exception is the wait on room service. The location is breathtaking and the restaurants are more than exquisite.
