The beautiful penthouse suite with the jacuzzi, huge bed and view of the Pacific and the rainforest. The personalized service, especially the adaptation of the menu items for my intolerances (gluten, lactose, nightshades). The incredible massages by Lucie, both the deep tissue on the first day and the swedish style of the last. The proximity to Biesanz beach, with its white sand and turquoise calm waters. Small is beautiful is the motto at Issimo, with its 13 rooms, and while some of the bigger places I saw felt like ghost resorts, the vibe here was nice, making me feel right at home. Muchas gracias por su hospitalidad.
Although my stay was almost perfect, I think the challenges related to COVID19 and the rainy season made it such that the food in the restaurant was less delicious than it might have been in busier times. This being said, some dishes were truly excellent, especially the fresh seafood and fish dishes and the staff made a huge effort to adapt the menu to my food intolerances. I did find however that most of the dishes were overpriced.
