My husband and I just returned from a six-day stay in Costa Rica from August 19 to 26th, which we took for our two-year anniversary. First let me say that we stayed at a 5-star hotel in Cancun for our honeymoon, and, based on the reviews I read and that Costa Rica doesn't have true 5-star hotels (as far as... More

My son (8 years old) and I stayed here last week and we absolutely loved it. There were minor issues, but they were all resolved in a timely way.

Very friendly staff, clean resort with awesome facilities. If you can score an upgrade to the suite with a pool, go for it, even if you have to pay the nominal additional fee. Looking down at the ocean with a drink in your hand in your own pool...priceless!

The staff / service overall was fantastic. Everyone was naturally very friendly and accommodating (and you could tell it was not just because they were looking for a tip). If there was an issue, it was always resolved quickly. We loved the "Kidz Paradise" (complimentary supervised childcare for most of the day), especially Ruby, Kimberly and Kevin. They constantly offer... More
