Wonderful place
Awesome. Incredible hosts and staff. Originally we were going to stay 5 days and move on but decided to stay another 5. We woke each morning to howler monkeys and wild parrots greeting the day. Food is great and the service friendly and attentive. We will be coming back. Place is off the grid but you really couldn’t tell other than no AC but the rooms have fans and we had no problem sleeping. Highly recommend Hummingbird

Great hosts in PARADISE!
The fact that this review is being written that far after our stay should tell you all you need to know about this stunning property and location. The memories and experience will last a lifetime. And don't let the logistics of getting there stand in your way. The trip is soooooo worth it! Gary and Betsy are the best hosts my wife and I have ever experienced and are there to accommodate the guests with anything they could ever need. The property and surrounding garden is its own little paradise. And the beach is STEPS away! Just make the trip and enjoy.

We had a fantastic stay at the Hummingbird! The staff and owners, Gary and Betsy, were all so lovely and attentive. The food for breakfast and dinner was a delicious high standard, and whilst ‘they don’t do lunch’, the bar snacks are more than big and tasty enough to keep you going in the day. The 4 villas at the Hummingbird are equally charming, with doors that open fully bringing the forest and beach into your room, and give you a great way to spot the many species all around (We saw sloths, monkeys, frogs, lizards, an agouti, hummingbirds, and a turtle whilst in the grounds or just outside on Playa Bluff!)
