This property is located about 2 hours from the Santa Clara airport so be prepared for a long drive after arriving at the airport. But there is good beer and usually a good tour guide to show you the sights along the way. The hotel is lovely with a nice lobby bar that gets very crowded in the evenings. Great...

If you are a beach person this is the place to be! Yes.... There is a bit of a hill to climb over but that Crystal clear water and soft sandy bottom is worth it. Lots of chairs and shade although I strongly prefer umbrellas over the big long covered wood structures they offer. Pools- we went in June 2016...
