If you are planning on checking into this hotel try and find a better value. First, at check in the Honors personal ran away after seeing that I was American, then the room was very modest for $300. The door wouldn't lock and when I brought this to staffs attention they said well sorry...here's the bill!

We have been to Costa Rica many times, and we are a family in our thirties with a child. This resort is 80% Costa Rican and 20% american/other nationalities. It is the closest all inclusive to San Jose. The good: close to many tours, great pools, the best drinks we have had in Costa Rica, good food and it has... More

Two friends, my wife and I spent 10 days at this resort during Easter week /Semana Santa which happened to be their busiest week of the year. Reservations are absolutely necessary as this hotel turned out to be a favorite vacation destination for locals of the nearby capital and other major cities of Costa Rica. In fact there were relatively... More

We stayed in building 3 and it was nice and clean. No mold or wear as some other reviewers had stated. The resort had nice clean pools, plenty of option main, swim up bar, also a more private one by building 2. The grounds were well manicured and most of the staff had great customer service, including bar and restaurant... More

We were just there and during the World Cup!!!! What an experience. I have never heard so many people singing "Tico...Tico" It was fun. A bit not relaxing the first day, but fun. Swim up bar is great and drinks at all bars are good. Not weak like some all inclusives. The food was good, not fantastic, but good and... More

Upon cchecking in, had no problems. Once we got to our room, noticed that the AC wasn't working to it's fullest and that the room wasn't working either. After several tries with fixing the AC, they offered us a room change, but since we were in a great location (near the beach) and the fan worked excellent, we decided to... More

It is hard to keep up the good quality. I had a good impression from my last two visits to the hotel but found lower quality on my third visit. Impossible WiFi Access. I booked 3 rooms for my family but only 2 rooms had water bottles, coffee, and 24 hour free wifi internet access (we were not able to... More

We were at the hotel during the earthquake in 2012. At about 8:40 AM, my wife and I hear some very loud "BANGS" coming from the Northwest. Within a few seconds, the hotel started swaying and a second or 2 after that, the massive shaking began. The earthquake measured a 7.6 on the Richter scale and the shaking was massive.... More
