Courteous staff, great amenities and hot springs-this resort was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. The standard room was okay, nothing too special but just to have access to the hot springs made it an excellent stay. The bed was slightly uncomfortable for me, I found the mattress very stiff.
Breakfast buffet was decent, had a pretty good selection. We also went there for dinner once, but mostly ate out in the town. My only recommendation is to arrange your own taxi instead of asking the concierge because the cab fares was almost double if you book it through the hotel. The hot springs were always busy, but you can walk around and find spots with fewer people. The spa was beautiful, and we found the prices of the spa services very reasonable.
