The large pool was designed to combine the look of a European fountain with the natural turquoise waters of a cenote.
One previous visitor said, "Each room in the main house centers around the entry way and leads out to a lush interior courtyard. There is a covered porch where my family and I spent most of our time. Throughout the exterior, lights and fountains bring the space alive in the evenings."
