This was the first night of our 10 Day Costa Rica adventure. Stayed here on the recommendation of a travel agency. The hotel was nice. Staff was very friendly, but we arrived at 7:00PM (dark), ate in the restaurant, went to bed and were picked up at 6am the next morning to leave for our next destination. Never saw the pool, gardens, grounds, etc. The restaurant was fairly expensive. Food was good. Our flight landed at 4:30 and by the time we got through customs and started driving we were in "rush hour". I don't know if there are many routes, but most of our route was through a fairly industrial area. It took us over an hour to get to the hotel at this time of night through heavy traffic.
We had to keep our windows open in the room to cool things down and we did awake to motorcycle noise going by in the morning, as well as birds chirping. Luckily we were getting up early, but we were woken up about 5:30am by this noise. If I didn't have to be up, I would be frustrated by that.
Breakfast was included in our rate, but didn't open until 6:30. We had to leave at 6:30am so the woman helping us check in offered to make "to go" breakfast bags which was very helpful and very nice. She checked us in at about 7PM and was there again to hand us our bag at 6:30am. Hard worker! Bags were loaded with various items. Great customer service.
