The staff are friendly and the scenery is very beautiful! The beach is just a short shuttle ride away, and the shuttle comes around often enough. The hotel is situated on a hill, so if you have difficulty walking long distances, and prefer not to wait on a shuttle, try to get a room by the main building and buffet restaurant. There are a few day time events during the day (beer pong, aqua aerobics, pool volleyball, etc) and some night time things (poker night, dancing). It's not a place for young people who are just looking to party. You'd have to go into Coco beach to do that (it's a $10 USD shuttle from the hotel including return). You can also do a bit of shopping at Coco beach for cheaper prices than the hotel. The food is just okay. If you're a very picky eater, you may not enjoy eating here. There's always plenty of meat options (beef, pork, fish and chicken), some kind of rice, beans and vegetables. For breakfast, there are no fresh egg options (omelettes, fried eggs) like I've experienced at other resorts but there were scrambled eggs. They could have been cooked a bit longer...as they were a bit runny. There was bacon served for ONE breakfast....every other day it was small wiener/sausage type things. The a la carte option was delicious and you get to eat here twice during your stay. I had the steak which was AMAZING and my friends had the salmon and mahi mahi, which they enjoyed. The servers, bartenders and front desk work very hard and are eager to help you out with whatever you need. Overall, I'm glad I went, because it was Costa Rica!! I'd recommend this to someone who isn't too picky and is looking for something decent at a reasonable price.
Stay Somewhere else, this is not a good place

My family and I had extremely bad experience with this place. We paid for renovated 1 bedroom villa, but they gave us very old, dirty with very bad smell, old furniture, with broken air conditioner, broken blinds villa. When we asked for a different place and said that we paid for renovated, the management said they do not have any other place, while we witnessed them placing other people in better villas. The air conditioner and blinds were fixed only on third day. They put us in a cheaper hotel room after 3 days but refused to give us credit, very unfriendly, very bad place. It was our first time in the country, will never go back... Very disappointed, we lost money, had very bad vacation because of the management of this place...
less than average

My husband and I stayed a week in early April. The hotels staff did the miniminal required, never going out of their way, especially the front desk. We had booked an excursion through the company on site and the front desk never passed on the message that the fellow had called to say he would be late, so we waited over half an hour. To top it off, the tour guide Daniel (who also drove that day as we asked for a private tour) rear ended a money truck because he was driving like a bloody idiot in construction to make up for his tardiness. The company said they would re-imburse us but never did. Food was ok at the restaurant. The A-la carte restaurant is not open every night, so it is best to reserve asap.
We did a couples massage at the on-site salon which I highly recommend. The view on the bay is breath taking.

It's a nice all inclusive resort, but not the best. Built on a hill, the beach is either a steep hike from the hotel or a shuttle bus ride. When we were there the beach and the resort was quite crowded. The restaurant's food was good, tending toward more local fare, which was nice. There was no wi-fi, but there was a TV in the room.
Good place & awesome staff!

A great place to stay & play. One of the workers - Daniel Cruz was amazing! Great worker & made us feel right at home!! The resort has transportation readily available & many excursions you can book through the hotel. We did sunset snorkeling cruise, Nicaragua day tour, & river boat cruise. All 3 were excellent.
