This our first visit to Costa Rica and I was hesitant to say the least, although this hotel received excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. From the moment we checked into the hotel I knew we had made the best decision. Mario, the bellman, was awesome! A positive, welcoming attitude and huge smile - thank you! After the harrowing drive from the airrport, that is just what we needed. The staff welcomed us with a fresh welcome drink.
All areas of the hotel are beautifully appointed, from the marble statues and furnishings in the lobby, to the fabric for the dining tables, the detail in the draperies, the paintings in the breezeways and other areas in the hotel. All my senses were overjoyed.
There is fresh juice/water every morning in the lobby and the breakfast buffet is bountiful.
We ate dinner in the restaurant every evening and thought every dish we chose was excellent and aesthecially pleasing. The wine selections and drinks were also very good.
The 5th floor Lava bar has 'Happy Hour' every evening with light snacks if you choose to drink (2 for one). Another beautiful, yet relaxing space (both indoors and out).
We upgraded to a junior suite (room 319) which had a double jacuzzi in the room and 2 crescent shaped balconies, one with two chaise lounges and the other with a table/2 chairs. The room was HUGE, clean, and again decorated in a light minimalist style.
The bathroom had granite/lovely tilework and a shower with multiple shower heads (excellent pressure). The bed was like sleeping on a cloud of cotton!
The pools- two were 'cold' and the main pool was the hot mineral spring water as were the many jacuzzis and the water falls. After a day of white water rafting, we sat under the waterfalls and let the water pound our backs! How invigorating....they also have a hot sauna room behind the water falls.
I cannot say enough about this hotel or the welcoming, warm staff. We only stayed three days and we did not want to leave. It was one of the best places I have stayed in the world. The front desk staff will assist you incalling/reserving great excursions, so do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you, Thank you!
