We stayed here at the end of June for 2 nights, after spending the 2 nights at Rincon de la vieja and 3 nights at Arenal. When we arrived around 5pm on a Thursday, we were greeted by a very nice receptionist who offered us iced cold lemonade/ginger with some local rum! It was so refreshing and such a nice... More

The resort is beautiful and has actual beach access.The staff was so friendly and helpful you felt like old friends after just being there a few hours. They definitely went above and beyond to make your stay the best. The restaurant had amazing food and breakfast being included was... More

Great beachfront hotel. Rooms were clean, comfortable bed, cold A/C. Nice pool with swim up bar. Food was good at the restaurant, and drinks at the bar were good also. Plenty of places to lounge around the pool or at the beach. Employees were nice and helpful as well. We will definitely be back as we live 4-1/2 hours away... More

Rooms: We stayed May 3 - 6. We had rooms 110 & 108. The rooms are just as pictured by numerous other guests: 2 queen beds with fans, AC, small desk, TV, and mini-fridge. There were snacks but there were (hefty) prices billed to the room if any were taken. Drinks in the mini-fridge as well. I'm not sure about... More

Family trip with 14 people. 3 nights here. Hotel needs a little TLC but it's still good. Food is good. Ate breakfast and lunch and one dinner. Staff is terrific especially Ernesto who went above and beyond for us. Thank you all!!! We leave tomorrow morning.

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our CR vaca. Staff was EXTREMELY helpful and friendly; offering up local beach spots & local restaurant recommendations. Pros: beach location (can't beat Potrero), friendly staff, beautiful gardens, great, fresh breakfasts (that were included in the hotel rate), reasonable prices. Cons: dated amenities, uncomfortable beds

The location right on the beach, friendly staff and the well-groomed grounds go a long way to make up for the many little things that weren't up to what I was expecting. They all are small items but in total they all added up. Greeted at reception with a cool glass of limeade and cold towel. Everything went smoothly and... More

We stayed here for the second half of our ten day excursion and it was awesome. The staff was so kind and helpful. The food was delicious and inexpensive. The hotel was rustic and quaint. Just a perfect ending to a long awaited trip. I can't wait to go back.

We didn't stay at the hotel but popped in for some food. The atmosphere is super typical resort kitschy. Bob Marley plays in a loop in the background, the blender sounds off from time to time at the swim up pool palapa bar. And the menu has all the usual suspects at resort inflated prices. Staff was nice and friendly.... More

This place is amazing! The views are perfect, the food is above average, and the best part is the staff. It's a little more relaxed, but the adventures are not far away. I will be back!! There are also several excellent restaurants lining the beach, catamaran rides, snorkeling, horseback riding, zipline tours can all be booked at the front desk.... More
