Was recently here for a week, and I have to say they went above and beyond in service. I had problems with my wifi and they not only upgraded my room they gave me an oceanfront. The resort is very well maintained and a feature is the almost completely private and secure spacious bungalows. My eventual bungalow was enormous, the... More

Wonderful getaway from San Jose. Clean, spacious comfortable villas. Beautiful well kept grounds.. Staff was very attentive brought cold drink and wet wash cloth upon arrival. Couldn't ask for better view of ocean from restaurant. Food good. Flat and very easy to get around for a couple of old farts. We will definitely return.

The hotel is stunning with a beautiful garden and two swimmingpools. On arrival we were welcomed with drinks and a tour around the property. We had booked the bungalow with ocean view and we got the villa with ocean view which was almost as big as an apartment, private plunge pool included. The inside decorations are beautiful and there has... More
