What Our Visitors Say
” What an amazing resort and staff. Everything from the food and activities were great. We made some amazing memories with our family and friends and can’t wait to come back.”
“Twelve members of our family enjoyed Sonadora this July to celebrate my 39th birthday once again! This trip was a gift from my children and bar none, the most wonderful place on earth they could have brought me! The setting and grounds are so beautiful, it looks surreal …almost something out of a movie. The Manager, Christian, is the key ingredient, though. He is a phenomenal host, chef, baker, concierge, and the list never ends! It was the trip of a lifetime, surrounded by those I love the most. We will be back, Christian! Thank you, Kids, for the best gift a Grandmother could ever ask for! I am coming back every year until I turn “80”.
Start baking, Christian! We would take you home, if we could!”
“My family and I stayed here for five days in March 2018 and it was a fantastic holiday. We were tired and burned out. We had 7 people ranging from a 1 year old to a 71 year old with us. We very comfortably stayed in this one villa and everyone had a wonderful time. This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for anything other than the “college spring break experience.” It would be great for a family, an older couple, grandparents/grandkids, a honeymoon, or even a small wedding. Here’s what to expect: After you have collected your bags at the airport, you don’t have to worry about anything. They pick you up in a shuttle, drive you 1.5 hours north to the beautiful secluded property, and attend to your every need throughout your stay. Belladona is one of two identical villas on this property. Each villa has a private pool and there is a larger shared pool between them. Just beyond that is a sandy beach where you can swim, fish, kayak, snorkel, sunbathe, walk, ride an atv, or whatever you like. Each day, they set up umbrellas and chairs on the beach and bring provisions out to you as needed. The kayaks, beach toys, inflatable pool toys, and paddle boards are provided for free. Its a huge sprawling sandy beach and you get to have it pretty much all to yourself. The pools can be heated during the cooler months for an extra charge (we heated both the small pool by the villa and the larger pool and both became very comfortable in late March). Cell phone service is non-existant but internet (and internet calling) is very reliable. There are a lot of amenities inside the house, you don’t really need to bring anything (they have binoculars, a cocktail shaker, books, games, direct tv, dvd players, multiple TV’s, bluetooth speakers, toys, high chairs, pack and play, etc). For a fee, they’ll stock the fridge and bar with whatever you like. There are a lot of activities and services available (for additional fees) including ATV rentals, horseback riding, massages, full time bartending, chef services (which i highly recommend), fishing, sunset cruising, remote snorkeling, fishing charter, etc. We stayed for five days and really didn’t get to do everything. All of the meals prepared by Rosario and Cristian were delicious and well presented. Cristian is the on-site attendant who makes sure you have everything you need during your stay. He was available by walkie talkie but we never had to call him. He preemptively went out of his way to check on/accommodate us but somehow was never intrusive. This guy is a gentleman. By the end of our stay he and Rosario felt like family. Ken, the owner, has thoughtfully designed this property for the ultimate guest experience. The grounds, the location, the available activities, and the wonderful staff all demonstrate a thorough understanding of the local area and how one provides a truly exceptional, individually…”
