1 year anniversary

My husband and I spent our one year anniversary at this resort and had an amazing time! Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time at the beach. The nightly entertainment was great and our room was very nice. A great vacation for the price.

Great Place!

Great place to stay! Rooms are well appointed. Wonderful staff. It's not the fanciest all inclusive but it is good for those on a budget.

Excellent Value

We were looking for an all inclusive for the last 2 days of a 12 day vacation in Costa Rica close to the Liberia Airport. We found the perfect gem to meet our needs. Great Pool, Beach Access, Activities, Entertainment. If staying for longer, I would have preferred a room with a view and not on the ground level - a choice when booking.

Good value, lacks beach front

Pros: Friendly staff, not too far from LIR, decent food & drinks, large pool, close to the volcano park and Coco beach Cons: Bed was hard as a rock, pool felt like warm bathwater, no beach. I think this would be a nice stay for a long weekend but a whole week would get boring.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Hotel Hacienda Adventure Park is about an hour away and is a great deal - zip line, horseback riding, river tubing, and hot springs for $85/person - a full days' worth of activities

Pura Vida vacation

Hotel does not have 4 stars service, The main concern was housekeeping: no shampoo, no conditioner, no body lotion, sometimes they did not clean up our room, did not bring clean towels, housekeepers did not understand English. The beach towel station was too far away from the beach and was closed at 5 pm, no restroom on the beach area. Food was good, but restaurant staff mostly does not speak English. Front desk people were very helpful.I would rate this hotel like 3 stars resort and will not stay over there next time

Would not go back

This is the first time I've given a review in my many years of travel. I hope I can prevent someone else from making the mistake of booking at this place. The room they tried to stick us with was horrible! I immediately said something to the front desk person and was told they wouldn't have another room for 2 days. It smelled so badly of mold and mildew that we didn't sleep one hour that first night. The next morning I demanded they move us the next day. Finally, they moved us to a room that wasn't disgusting. They also allowed small children the last weekend we were there!
