    wasn't bad just not GREAT

    staff, presentation & location was accommodating the food at the buffet was better than the hotel restaurant and there was ONLY ONE hotel restaurant included in the all inclusive... there was hardly a variety of food at the buffet but it was all good tasting & the staff was very kind. THE WORST PART THERE WAS NOOOOO ENTERTAINMENT NONE NOTHING IT WAS SO BORING ! I was hoping to see some Costa Rican culture but nothing and the closest city was not too developed

    Great place to stay. A true gem!

    This hotel has the best views around! The rooms are nice and clean, the staff is super friendly, the food is great, the grounds are gorgeous, and the activities are fun. I definitely recommend to anyone to check this place out. If you can get a group of peoe, definitely rent one of the larger villas!

    Do not rent a car unless you plan on traveling around the country! The price they tell you is just an estimate! I was quoted $146 and it turned out to be $450! I didn't even need a car!

    AWESOME VACATION!

    I stayed here a full week with my family. The room was very comfortable and we had our own private balcony, which I thought was fantastic, as I liked to sit outside with my wife after the kids went to sleep. They had various activities for the kids to take part in as well during the day, and offer a cheap shuttle service to Coco Beach where there is a lot more activity then in Playa Hermosa. It was perfect because we could relax by the pool during the day and get to where we needed to go very easily. The menu had a good variety, and the staff was very nice and was willing to help arrange any tours for us that we wanted. I would highly recommend.

    great time

    the location and value of the hotel was great. only a few minor things like them forgetting to do a wake up call, and us having to ask for an alarm clock in the room, and the shower not having hot water, but other than that the place was great for the price.

    best for family

    The view was beautiful, but the actual location was not so nice. You had to take the little shuttles to the beach,sometimes there was a wait to get one, and if you're from Florida you will be disappointed because the beach area is ugly, that black sand. The pools are quite crowded as this is a timeshare resort place...lots of very small people everywhere!! All in all it was a good value for the money, I will pick another location next time in Costa Rica.

    Wonderful R&R Vacation

    Just got back and had a great time. Beautiful location, right on the beach and the people and staff were great! Only complaint is could have a better variety of food. Gets pretty tiring of the same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Other than that, had a great time and would highly recommend,
