    Excellent resort!!

    Henry, Daniel and Johnny were the BEST at the pool. So nice and always happy, great carisma and great customer service. We also liked the young man at the hibatchi. Our favorite restaurant was Seaside grill. Great food!!! We really enjoyed our time there! Besides tons of mosquitoes (bring bug spray:))) everything was great!

    Costa Rica

    Carlos out poolside bartender was outstanding. He went above and beyond to accommodate us. William out night time bartender was very helpful and attentive to our group. The staff all the way around was great. The only thing that I didn’t like about the resort was waiting on transportation to take you everywhere but that is Costa Rica in the forest.
