Room: two double beds, table and chairs, air con, bathroom a bit dated, but OK and all clean. Right on the beach, nice pools, food OK although breakfast limited. Resort - a bit too busy and commercialised for us, but good beach and choice of eateries, including Pizza Hut. However our best meal was at a fairly expensive but very... More

As always before you travel, do your research before you go (note Youtube walkthroughs, etc) so you can set your levels of expectation before you arrive. You can uncover pretty much everything about anywhere these days, right down to the names of the staff and the type of coffee they serve if you invest some time doing research. We visited... More

My boyfriend and I booked this one through a travel agent who said that it was nice enough for a 3-star resort. I would not recommend Morgan's Cove Resort and Casino to anyone with high standards. Despite the convenient location (10 minute stroll into town) and clean beach, the place itself was lackluster in the following ways: If you pay... More

Carol and visited this resort in Costa Rica (a no smoking country by the way) in late January. The resort is exceptionally clean and well maintained, but dated. The food is definitely influenced by local cuisine, on a daily basis you will experience rice, beans, vegetables with pork or chicken. The best meal of the day is breakfast where you... More

We just spent two weeks at Morgans Cove and loved it. I was looking for something different from Mexico and Cuba and this was it! The rooms were clean and everything we needed I am a vegetarian so found the options limited at times, but my daughter is not a vegetarian and found the meals good. I did not ask... More

I liked this place. It's not overly fancy but has a good atmosphere. Rooms were decent even if everything wasn't working properly. The grounds are good with 2 clean pools and nice chairs. The beach is as others have described, rocky until you walk into the water a bit. Good for surfing. I thought the food was really good. The... More

I felt the urge to write a review about my experience lodging, and dining at Morgan's Cove after reading some of the other mixed reviews. I had been there over 1 year ago and my friend 4 months. Morgan's Cove and Black Beards restaurant is definitely an exceptional place. My friend Peter and I stayed on the all inclusive with... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks with another couple in mid January 2015. Our choice was based mainly on the location and proximity to the national parks in the area and was just used as a "base of operation". Having said that, it was sufficient for what we were looking for but by no means should be considered... More
