Nice hotel with easy access to a beautiful beach. Went with the breakfast package instead of the all-inclusive and were happy with our choice. Several lovely restaurants within walking distance or short ride.

Great location. Beach access is unbeatable! Amazing sunsets! Service leaves a lot to be desired except for the staff in the Italian restaurant. Kid friendly which was a plus for our family. We utilized the all inclusive option and get that there were a lot of options for up selling, which takes away from the overall experience in my opinion. The food options were ok but we only stayed for three nights. If we stayed for longer, would probably have ventured away for meal options. I felt the resort was safe! The view from our balcony was amazing and we could see the ocean.

Good location, great staff, large pool, on the beach, access to excursions. Could maybe have a little more variety in the buffet breakfast. Recommended, and would go again!

We really enjoyed the scheduled activities around the pool.

Right on the beach, the most beautiful beach , and not the frat party the name suggests very calm and relaxing - staff are brilliant. The “town” has 2 shops - you need to travel for anything close to western shopping facilities but you don’t come to this part of the world to experience what you have at home so just enjoy the simple life - Pura Vida . A really lovely stay I had the relation pool (full size but swag from the main pool) to myself most days and the hotel was full

The property was really close to the beach which made it nice to be able to walk on in the mornings.

Loved the hotel and the amenities! Andrea was very helpful and kind. We came here for our anniversary and were very pleased with our experience.

It is the staff at the resort. Very nice and personable with ALL guests.

Nice property, easy access to beach. This is not a typical "beach town" i'm used to. There isn't much town....a few small restaurants and the rest is condos/private property. So don't expect to get out and see much outside of hanging out on the beach. Beware that not all drinks/food are included in the "all inclusive." There are uncharges for drinks and certain foods. There are 3 resturants on site, all three are decent. Given the lack of food choices in town, I recommend the all inclusive as the prices are resort prices so you'll pay a lot for a small meal.

The staff was wonderful and treated us like family. The entire property was clean and well maintained.

Staff was always attentive and very friendly. During our stay this location is blessed with an almost constant comfortable breeze! Pool and pool bartenders were superb! Not a huge resort or pool, but the beach is steps away. Beach was nice, and would love to see some beach palapas along the edge of beach. Would stay here again, great value for price paid.

Very nice resort...beautiful location....very friendly and helpful staff.

Great beach paid for five adults and a sweet but could only use Internet for three
