We liked Costa Rica in general, it was just as I expected. We had no expectations of white beaches or Caribbean waters; here is by the Pacific Ocean! We were mainly there to see the rain-forests and the beautiful landscape of the country. The resort had the best food among the all-inclusives we've been to so far but it was kind of far from the beach.. I mean it wasn't a long walk at all, but the beach was not really visible from the hotel areas, there was not even a beach bar!
The weather was gorgeous however the days ended so early, it was dark at 6 pm --in June. If you get up 9 pm or later, you don't get to have a long day. We loved the cocktails, service, rooms, etc.. Well worth the money!
