This hotel has a beautiful view. It is up on a cliff in a jungle overlooking the Pacific. The staff was so friendly and accommodating especially Alan the general manager. The rooms are nice but I would have liked more amenities such as robes. The breakfast was great. I felt the grounds needed some updating though. It is not walking... More

This was our first time in CR and after researching on TA I chose this hotel. My husband and I were travelling with our teenaged daughter and her friend. We had a unique perspective as the teenaged friend got very ill during our stay - which I will talk about later! The hotel and grounds are beautiful and we found... More

We stayed just one night for a family of 6 - the vista view suite, and the garden view. It was really wonderful for a vacation where you want to spend a lot of time at the resort. Both rooms were very nice but the suite with the jacuzzi on the balcony was an amazing special treat and we enjoyed... More

We would probably go back to this resort. It was very nice, and it is perched in the prime location on the tip of a small 'peninsula', affording many views of the pacific. The Spa was nice - the best hot stone massage I've ever had! The grounds were beautiful, and home to many animals. We saw several monkeys, a... More

Service in line with any large international hotel and dealt with the busier periods well. Food was good and nicely varied and had good veggie options for the non meat eaters in the family. Even...
