This Hilton resort is popular. We stayed during Easter Week which coincided with holidays. Yet despite being very busy, the complex has enough space for one not to feel too crowded in. It also operates a full daily programme for all ages - ideal for families.
The seaside location is OK for body sufing but too rough for swimming and too cloudy for snorkelling. A key weakness in location is that security advise against walikning outside the complex whether on the beach or outside: ( a socially depressed area). However there are 5 pools available in total. It would be good if one of those was for swimmers and swimming only.
Accommodation is very good. Clean and well maintained. Staff are attentive and helpful in general.
Tours can be arranged easily.
There are two restaurants open to those who are resident for more than 3 nights, both are a la carte, either a fish restaurant or local Costa Rican. We found service and food were far better in the fish restaurant.
Guest services were extremely helpful, whatever the nature of the request.
If wev are ever back in Costa Rica this would be somehwere we would return to.
