The property was as advertised with great views of the pacific ocean and surrounding forest areas. The condo we rented was a very spacious 2 BD/ 2 Bath 1st level condo unit. The unit... More

This was hands down the worst amongst all the Costarican hotels we stayed at during our entire trip. Benjamin the manager is the single worst manager of any resort... More
