not for the beach

if you like a good resort to go back at night, this is the place. For the rest rent a car and go explore.

Anniversary Trip

We really enjoyed our stay. The Animation Team was super nice. The food was okay. We liked that there was a van to take you to your room. We would go there again.

Great vacation

The hotel was good for the price, food was actually excellent and people very nice. The resort is big and on the hill, but great view. Ocean was not so clean but that might be the time (July).

Disappointed family getaway

When we booked this vacation we were supposed to get a Honeymoon package which is free room upgrade, fresh flowers, stocked frig. i told them this at check-in and they said they had no other rooms to move us to check back tomorrow. Meanwhile, the resort was empty. The next day we had rotten fruit and they did put water bottles and juice in the frig. The food was just awful. We are glad we rented a car and ate out a couple meals. The drinks were a joke, watered down with cheap alcohol. The pool was nice. Very spacious and clean. The views were breathtaking. The resort is very pretty on the outside. Our room was so run down. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting and dirty. This was our first time to Costa Rica with our boys. We had an amazing time outside the resort. We learned our lesson not to book below a 3 star but I think this resort is a 2 star and they should be ashamed of themselves for not putting any effort into making it a nicer place. I would never recommend this resort to anyone.

Best Value in Costa Rica

My family of 5 absolutely loved it here. It was an incredible value. The buffets had a wide variety of choices so that even my 3 picky children (ages 9, 17, and 19) had a lot they loved to eat. We were amazed to see many monkeys in the trees by the beach one morning and on the private island their boat takes you to (we took the boat twice - the first day the monkeys were there the whole time - the second day the monkeys didn't come out until we were just about to leave). It was like being in their playground - mothers with baby monkeys on their backs, etc. Take some bananas from the buffet and they will come right up to you! The air conditioning stopped working once, but it was only a fuse. Same thing happened to our kids' room, so it must be a common problem. They promptly fixed it. We had a great view of the ocean/gulf. Local raccoon-like creatures come up close since they're used to being fed also. They also had good shows and entertainment. All in all, you can't beat the price - it's only a like more money than a hotel. I'd heard the food was bland, so I brought hot sauces and spicy condiments from home. I didn't need them. They have a local tasty sauce called "Salsa" in stores and they also have Tabasco. Everything was really great. Wish we'd had more time there, but we stayed at a boring timeshare our first 7 nights and only had 3 nights here.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel is to far away from the city. If you stay here be sure to rent a car. If not its $80 in a taxi everytime you want to go to coco beach or Liberia.

Stay away

It is an old hotel without maintenance, the a/c doesn't work, the shower doesn't work, the shoutle bus doesn't work, there are a lot of rays near to the beach, so it's dangerous to get in the sea. Won't go there again.

Terrible investment

Clean on day one but disappointed with room amenities. Although this was an all inclusive reservation, there was no stocked mini bar, no room service and no coffee available in our room. The bathroom was old and towels were not always provided or changed. The room was never swept and there was a consistent trail of ants everyday. We could hear the next door neighbors yelling, arguing, regurgitating, etc. Walls are paper thin. The accommodations were substandard compared to the accommodations we have had in Mexico. Had the rooms been cleaned and towels provided it would have made a difference. The staff work their butts off to entertain and converse with all the tourists. The stars of the week were Mainor, Madelyn and Cristian. The music was a little loud but they constantly keep the children entertained. I feel like I should receive a refund :-(
