honeymoon

Great hotel. Clean and kept up well. The staff was very nice and attentive to your needs. Food was not horrible, but it was nothing to brag out. Would probably stay in a hotel in Coco Beach next time to save money on the room and spend it on the wonderful restaurants located in Coca Beach.

We had a great and restful time at the hotel. It was at a great location, though it was a little hard to find on the map. But the staff were friendly, food was EXCELLENT, and it was just wonderful. Definitely would go back again!!

Stay away from this hotel

The hotel sits on a hillside. The view is great, but you need to get hotel transportation to take you all around the property and they are very slow. The head of guest transportation was extremely rude and attempted to bully me into paying for a service that he did not deliver.

great location - bad management

Hotel has a great peaceful location especially at the beach. Room had several problems: toilet was continuously flushing, one time even flooding, there was no chair for the desk, one lamp had no lampshade.These were small problems except for the toilet malfunction, especially since we were hardly using the room.We talked twice to somebody at the reception desk about these problems and called twice about the toilet - no action was taken. People at the reception were not friendly.We did not want to spoil our vacation by insisting on having these problems resolved and standing up - we wanted to relax in the sun and have a good time. Food was pretty good, waiters were friendly.Staff at the beach who provided snorkeling equipment was friendly.We booked a Palo Verde tour with Swiss Tours and had a great knowledgable tour guide. Canopy tour with Cat was good, sunset cruise with Charlie's was nice but not that special. We will definitely vacation again in Costa Rica, but at a different hotel. We felt that guest's concerns were not taken seriously or cared about.

It is not worth it...

If you are thinking of staying here, you may want to think twice. I stayed at this location for five days and it was horrible. For example the first day of arrival we noticed that our restroom was not fully completed. It was missing a light, the shampoo and conditioner bottles were broken, we made 4 calls and had to wait for 2 hours until someone showed up to fix it. Even then the customer service was horrible. [...] was an idiot his customer service was ugly and disappointing. The only think I can think was great was [...] a young lady who took care of needs as needed. Again if you are thinking of staying here. you may want to rethink your options. the location is in the middle of nowhere.

Fantastic Location with issues

After Thanksgiving a wonderful time to visit. sunny, warm/hot, mostly dry weather. Close to Coco Beach fishing village for taste of locals. Full day trip to Miravalles Rain Forest Area with mud bath & hot springs, plus Canopy tour. River Cruise in Palo Verde Natl Park. Hotel setting was impressive overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo. The beach faces north giving all day shade under trees if desired. Nice cooling breeze. Poor management of the facilities, mainly rooms. Solution was to move to a different room(s)
