This all inclusive resort was the worst experience we have ever had. The all inclusive package got you nothing but a buffet at ONE restaurant and bottom shelf liquor. The service was horrible and when we wanted to cancel the all inclusive two days into our trip that hotel gave us the run around for two days and we never got helped. The resort is located on a LARGE hill side where there is promised to be regular transportation to take you up and down, which is a lie. Do not spend your money here, it is not relaxing or pampering. If I could give a negative star I would. We ended up buying another hotel room down the beach just to salvage our trip.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. The airport transfer was a problem, driver was paid and then came back the next day saying he wasn't paid! The 2 bedroom unit we stayed in needed updating in regard to furniture, The all includive food was fairly good but the drinks were mediocre. THe food service staff agreed to cook the fish we caught and did an excellent job,

For a 3* resort it was fantastic! We were a bit apprehensive but happy once we got here! It’s super clean and the Hot water showers was appreciated! King bed was perfect, staff were great! Spa has two foot pedicure exfoliating fish tanks and that was fun! It’s a five min walk to the beach which was cool black sand and barely any rocks and you didn’t have to cut your feet on shells in the water! It was great!! We Got a bit of excercize walking the steep hills when we missed the shuttle from the beach at midnight hahaha the shuttles run every 15 minute so that was super handy also! We went to the beach for quite a few meals because who can resist eating by the ocean. Fantastic views from our room! Would come here again hands down!!

Costa Rica is Wonderful No matter where you stay

The resort was just what we needed. We had a rental car so we were able to freestyle our vacation.The hills are really steep at the resort but there is a shuttle that runs 6 am to 11 pm so you don't have to walk. The staff is very friendly and the amenities are nice. We stayed in a 1 BR Villa and it was very nice and very roomy. We had parrots and blue jays on our balcony every morning and the view was magnificent. We would definitely return to this resort in the future. Points value at 25,000 for the week was well worth it. The bed was a little on the hard side but my wife just took the pillows and made a pillow topper out of them.
