Beautiful resort! The rooms were great and the bathroom was wonderful! The bathrooms had plants in the showers and when it rained, the rain ran down a stone wall into the plants....we want this bathroom at home! The grounds were beautiful and each room, which was attached to one other room, had it's own private garden area; with rocking chairs on the porch with a view of the volcano. The food and service was good. The only annoyance was when we went to have our meals. Our trip was all-inclusive and it seems that there was some confusion each and every time we went to eat. We had to wear yellow bands at this resort and we assumed this identified what we would be doing or getting during our stay. The first night there we were handed a large menu, but a few minutes later the hostess came and took it from us and handed us a smaller menu to chose from when she found out we were all-inclusive, that was a little awkward. We felt at times as if the staff at the restaurant were a little annoyed with us because we didn't have "tickets" that they kept asking for. So I explain all of this to say...maybe there should be more of an explanation to the tourist as to how to handle meals when it's all-inclusive and/or talk to the staff about being a little more patient or trained on how to handle this situation. Breakfast each day was wonderful, as it was a buffet and had lots to chose from; and our other meals were tasty too. All of this aside...it is a beautiful resort and the side trips of ziplining and Safari ride down the river was great! We loved our guides! The pool(s) and hot spring(s) were to die for and are a must when you visit here. Pura Vida!
