We took a tent for a couple of nights in this "resort". The only thing private about it is the view... the tents are too close to each other so you hear everything in the other tents or what is going on at the bar. There are rules however that it should be silent from 10pm to 8am. This is hardly obeyed though and even the staff doesn't care. Staff will start at 6 in the morning with cleaning and in the evening staff will not turn down the music until 11pm?! Next to this it is besides a busy road and the cars of the Tico's make a lot of noise, the more the better. Bed sheets are with (blood)stains but are "clean", showers are always stone cold. I wouldn't recommend it here unless you are a teenager and get drunk in bed every night and sleep like a rock. Pay either more for a private room or find even cheaper places to sleep in the area.
