One of the best holidays we've had
We booked this last minute and we had no great expectations, but were we wowwed. The hotel was very good, 200 rooms with very friendly staff, facilities and service. We had a great time. We went all inclusive and unlike other times when a buffet is laid on, we were able to order of the menu so it was like a la carte, most things were available but if wanted something more lavish it was available for a nominal fee. The bar was very well stocked and I wanted slightly different drink and they accomodated my request and even welcomed my husband behind to bar to make the drink for me. Swimming pool was great but the beach was wonderful, only a short walk (30 seconds) to it. In our opinion the friendly team staff made the holiday briliant, there was Michael and Errol from the 5 o'clock bar. Marjorie in the restaurant and the lovely Italian resturant manager, who was so welcoming - the pizza and pasta was brilliant. We even met George the executive chef who was very nice. Manuel organised the pool day time entertainment, was very pleasant and friendly and encouraged us to take part. Verney the very charming towel man was so helpful in advising on excursion and local knowledge. These are just whose names we can but honestly we had a lovely chilled out time.
4 years ago we were at the same site under old ownership. Margaritaville has kept the best of the old owners and improved (mostly). The staff is excellent, excellent, excellent. (except for the upstairs bar/restaraunt). Their breakfasts are great. The facilities are super and clean and fresh. (If your hot water doesn't work, tell them immediately and they will make it right!) From the breakfast staff to the concierge desk, to the pool bar staff (ESPECIALLY them) to the cleaning staff, we had a great experience.
Great vacation with my family
It was a very good experience. We enjoyed the time spend at the hotel and definitely it is an option to visit again. As a suggestion, the service should be more proactive with the people that are around the pool, because every time that we want to drink or eat something we had to go to the bar to ask.
My husband and I went to Margaritaville to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, and get some much needed rest.
Absolutely beautiful resort and extremely well maintained. Staff were always cleaning and manicuring the greens. The pool was amazing and the beach access was easy; leading to a gorgeous stretch of the Pacific coast. White sand, clean beach and staff nearby to bring you chairs at a moments' notice, and showers right there for you to wash off. Food was excellent quality, and a nice mixture of local cuisine as well as American. The Italian Bistro makes a killer Fire grilled pizza, but also had elegant choices where we ate for our actual anniversary meal. Now the best for last; the staff. Never have I experienced such a vast array of awesome people; always so friendly and anxious to please. They always made us feel so welcome and were willing to go above and beyond. There were several that remembered our names, what some of our preferences were, and did things for us before we even had to ask! A few of the exceptional local folks at this resort were: Errol Q - such a pleasure chatting with him! He took such pride in his job of exceptional customer service. Jaime was our server in the Italian Bistro and was one of the friendliest guys you could ever meet! He put extra touches on our meals (like Happy Anniversary Sue & Wes on our plate of Tiramisu) that made it very special. Veronica at the swim up bar made some amazing drinks and would remember special things like my extra toasted coconut! Marjorie in the Banana Wind cafe was a sweetheart; always happy and pleasant! Stephanie at the front desk was so nice, and very professional and thorough, yet made you feel very welcome. The staff at the Spa were amazing, and at the gift shop were always very nice. We had an excellent experience with an excursion booked through Cinthya, the Concierge, and she was very helpful and friendly as well. We were sad to have to leave, and will give highest recommendations to all of our friends and family at home. Now - the sun rises and sets early, so plan accordingly. We were not interested in a nightlife, and were tired earlier than usual, but were happy to have a huge breakfast buffet overlooking the ocean early every morning. The All-Inclusive was definitely worth it! Loved our time here - thank you Margaritaville CR!! ~ Sue & Wes
Pura Vida at Costco Rica
I just got back from Margaritaville and I must say I had such a great time. The beach is nice and clean and the water temperature is perfect for the weather. The food is good. All staff members are super friendly. My family and I loved our experience with Fabian, Elias, Felix, Errol and Fiona, they are all super friendly. There are a few friendly raccoons that visit every night, they are super cute and I hope the hotel keeps them. The rooms are clean and the hotel is small but it’s perfect because it’s not crowded like big hotels. My only complaint is that they need to change the music at the bars and add more entertainment.
