The resort is beautiful and the country speaks for itself, but the service provided by entertainment staff Kevin and Jaffett was incredible. They both went above and beyond to be sure our excursions were memorable. They guided us on kayak and bicycle tours around the resort and were both very informative and pleasant. Look up both of them during your... More

I traveled here with my daughter. Music in the evening was beautiful ; trips on the river were great; animals were exciting. We enjoyed the small cabin type stay with a small bus to transport you up and down the mountain.

I had a great time in Costa Rica. The Hotel is very nice. Staff was very kind. There were different restaurants in the hotel. Two pools, I usually was at the adult pool, where it was morr quit. The hotel is very excluded. So no wondering around by yourself at night. You can however book very nice tours in the... More

If you want excellent service, Olman is the man ask for. He's super attentive, friendly & always remembers our names and helped make our trip welcoming and warm!!! The best trip ever. The resort is in a great location with plenty of private rooms tucked neatly in the lush landscape. I will definitely be coming back.

All staff were very friendly and accommodating. Spa was great. Dining was an adventure. It's all inclusive. Portions tended to be very small. Pools were great. Jet ski was fun. Off property tours were available and pretty good. No nightlife to speak of. Spent a relaxing two days and two days of tours and activity. Good value, just remember you're... More

Okay lets see... Food- I thought all of the food was very good however you would be surprised how after the evening time how the drinks got remarkably stronger. I was disappointed because YOU HAVE TO HAVE reservations each night or they will TURN YOU AWAY!!! The room service costs 15$ and was not worth it. Breakfast assortment was the... More

For an all-Inclusive resort, I was pleasantly surprised to find only buffet at breakfast. Lunch and dinner was served a la carte in three restaurants. Wonderful steaks and seafood in each. The presentation was gourmet! The wines were from Argentina and delicious! The main pool consisted of three separate polls on varying levels with infinity edges flowing from to the... More
