    Overnight to catch a flight

    Beautiful hotel with a staff that is anxious to please. Got in around 5 p.m. and left at 6 a.m. but our short stay was wonderful. Drinks at the pool bar, dinner at the restaurant. All was relaxing and fun.

    Hit their breakfast buffet, but eat lunch and dinner at one of the many places within a 10 minute walk of the hotel. Or get something at the market and bring it back to the room.

    Great place to stay

    We stayed here for the first night we got into Costa Rica, and the last, before flying out. The shuttle was right there when we got arrived, which was very helpful, the reception was pleasant, the design of the hotel is very Costa Rican, and everything was satisfactory. We had breakfast the morning after we arrived, and it was a very ample and tasty hot breakfast, with eggs made to order. We were amazed to find that it came with the room! Very great value.
