We stayed 2.5 days here, arriving to clear blue skies after an almost 5 hour drive from Manuel Antonio. Next two days were marred by weather system that caused pouring rain in between periods of almost clearing. The resort's thermal pools were delightful in varying temperatures and in beautiful layouts, providing privacy. The wireless internet was only available in the large lobby, but it would have been helpful to be able to access it elsewhere as well, particularly on the rainy days. We took a canyoning excursion via Pure Trek which we highly recommend. When we arrived in the room, our bathroom door was locked from the inside and so we had to request from the front desk that someone come unlock it and this was done swiftly. Same thing when we realized that we only had one bath towel. Rocking chairs on the front porches were a wonderful treat, especially during the rain. Wonderful view of the volcano, when the clouds allowed. Restaurant on property was good, but nothing stellar. Exteriors of the resort walls shows wear, and could use some maintenance, but it did not impact our stay. So, not high luxury, but fine for our vacation.
