We we there in March and found the grounds beautiful. Most units have a fabulous view of the bay. The food at the restaurant was very good with a lot of selection. The service was great. There is shuttle service going around and down to the beach and main office. Well maintained.

WOW, most definitely, this is one of the best trips ever. Our friends told us about this trip to Costa Rica and we were a little hesitant in the beginning but we did our research and we decided to go. Well, it was worth it. The villas on the hill got me speechless, great concept. Also, we went kayaking and... More

Decent all inclusive with drinks and food. Could have had some more variety but overall selection was good. The rooms were kept up well and the pool was awesome. The best part for us was we were travelling at American's and they put the playoff football games on while we were in the pool and met up with many others... More

Do not Stay here! We arrived at our room to find the air conditioner not working properly, the blinds were broken and would not go up, the refrigerator was not working,and the toilet would not flush properly. The villa was also very dirty - white doors and walls were gray and black, cupboards were sticky, the hide-abed that our son... More

We went here as part of a family vacation, traveling from the rainforest. First, the lobby was hot and not very clean. Very little information was given about anything. We were told in order to get free wifi, we had to sign up for a time share presentation. The room was fairly clean, but the air conditioning did not work... More

We stayed in a villa (83-1) and it was absolutely beautiful! We are avid hikers, but make no mistake... the hike up to the room is rough in the heat. We would walk down and take the shuttle up. We never really waited longer than 20 minutes for a shuttle, and during the day, it came quite frequently. If I... More

I was leery about staying here due to the mixed nature of the reviews, and I was very pleasantly surprised! We stayed in a one bedroom villa, so I cannot say what the hotel rooms were like, but our unit was very clean on arrival and everyday of our stay. It was spacious and modern, air conditioning and appliances all... More
